Bishopric garden in Orléans Garden

Come on... and have a rest in this nice jardin de l'Evêché... Look! This brick and stone wall is a vestige from the old Gallo-Roman's rampart. The bishopric was built by cardinal Cambout de Coislin, king of France Louis XV's first chaplain. Yes, this is a perfect Classical building: sober outlines, a symmetrical main body...

At the bottom of the garden, do you see that? Sainte-Croix cathedral, just behind the lovely gate!
