It's impossible to pay a visit to Orleans, Centre's capital, without being
reminded of its long-standing ties with Joan of Arc. She's immortalised
nearly everywhere, from a statue in the town square to a heroic likeness in
front of the magnificent Sainte Croix (Holy Cross) Cathedral. The source of
this reverence dates from the Siege of Orleans in the 1420s, when Joan, then
a teenage peasant girl, broke through the English lines and ended the
seemingly interminable stakeout in just nine days. The victory marked the
turning point in the Hundred Years' War, and from here Charles VII's
revitalised troops set about eradicating the foreign occupancy. The main
attraction to bear "The Maid's" name is the Maison de Jeanne d'Arc - a
reconstruction of her home that's packed with models and displays that
illustrate the siege. There's more to Orleans than a single legacy, however.
The Musee des Beaux Arts is well worth a look for its fine collection of
portraits from the French school, as well as works by both Renoir and
Picasso. Elsewhere, the Gien Museum, housed in an old clay cave, tells the
story of fine Gien earthenware from the early 19th century onwards; it also
features a spectacular collection of colourful pottery. A look here and you will be able to find where to stay in Orleans. Make your choice of and of the cheap hotels in Orleans, click on any of the pictures for more info and to check on room availability.
