Orleans

The Essential
Interesting
Wheat from Beauce, honey, chickens and potatoes from the Gâtinais, game from Sologne and wines from the Loire Valley. At the centre of a particularly rich natural environment, Orleans was a much treasured commercial centre. Treasured by the legions of Caesar, then the English... But Joan of Arc was watching! The capital of the Centre region is also called « Cité des roses » or « Jardin de France », as seen in the gardeners' plots, nurseries and marshlands around the town.
