Overview
More
The cathedral of Notre-Dame in Bayeux is an impressive building, a mix of Romanesque in the 11th century crypt and glorious Gothic in the 13th-century nave. In the 11th century after the Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066, ties with England were strong. You'll see a reference to the turbulent past above the south transept portal where sculpted scenes show the life of Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury who was assassinated in Canterbury Cathedral on the orders of King Henry II of England. The Bayeux Tapestry was kept here from the 11th to the 18th centuries, probably displayed for the first time on the day the cathedral was consecrated in 1077 in the presence of William the Conqueror.

A truly fabulous cathedral that dominates the skyline of Bayeux. We busted on a very warm afternoon and were glad escape the heat.

The Cathedral is a definite must see when in the Normandy area. It sets in such a historic area and time of it's beginning. Well worth a good visit.

First time in Paris was in 2014, and I didn't get the chance to enter Notre Dame. This time I did, and it was just breathtakingly beautiful! Being May, the lines were not what they would be in July-August, so it took 10 minutes to...More

well-preserved, quiet, next to the Art Museum in the center of the city. Worth going to see if you came here for WWII museums.

It was a real treat touring this church steeped in the history of the area. So long as you do not use a flash, pictures are welcome. There are many above average restaurants in the area that are reasonably priced.

This is an amazing cathedral, more beautiful on the outside. The cathedral built during William the Conqueror time, was mostly spared during WW2. We were luck enough to be treated to a “free” concert given by young adults while visiting. For the most part, the...More

Just a stunning place to visit. As with all cathedral's the scale is incredible to think that it was built using primitive tools.
