Facade Of St. Croix, Orleans, France

I wonder how a church that has been damaged not once but twice, get back all its splendor, stand tall and magnificent! The St Croix at Orleans is one such monument! The 13th century cathedral was destroyed once in 1568 by Protestants. It was reconstructed in Gothic style. This was damaged in WWII and again restored to its previous glory. The monochrome façade has fantastic details. My neck ached as I gazed upwards and my eyes resting on every detail. Definitely a wonder of a monument by medieval builders and craftsmen!

Most attractive part of the façade is the ‘wedding cake’ like towers.
