Street District Rue Jeanne-d'Arc in Orléans

Joan of Arc, maid of Orléans! They decided to call a street after her name.

In 1750, they already planned on building a street, straight to the cathedral of Sainte-Croix. But nothing was done.

A new plan was born in 1811. Finally, in 1825, Orléans city declared the usefulness of the Bourbon's street building.

Finished in 1846, this street was called "Jeanne d'Arc street". After 1940's bombings, they extended it to the west.
