  • Only had a few minutes to view this city-center cathedral, but was impressed with its beauty and the space it occupied.

  • One of my favorite Cathedrals throughout our stay in France. It was very beautiful and historic. The colors at night are also quite a treat and highlight the architecture.

  • This cathedral is stunning inside and out. If you can walk by it at night while it's lit up (possibly only on Saturdays) you will not be disappointed.

  • Even as an atheist, I was really impressed with the grandeur and majesty of this building. Walking through it you can feel the history in every corner. Incredible to imagine all the resources and effort that went into building it so long ago and maintaining it for all that time. Really glad it (and the town) was not impacted by significant WW2 bombing.
  • In the centre of Bayeux, this grand cathedral is towering over its environment. Bayeux is a small town. It is easy to find your way around. The cathedral has stunning glass in lead windows and a high arching architecture. The entrance is free and 2.50€ lets you light a candle for peace or dedication. On Monday when we visited, it was not busy.
  • Must visit!! A wonderful Cathedral that has lovely art, history, services, weddings, and a cool bone of an old lady in a reliquary. There is also a dank crypt below the choir. It's very cold and smelly, but has some cool art on the ceilings. Watch your head!! Very wheelchair accessible with ramps and elevators up and down all major chapels and such.
  • I am not really religious. The architecture of the building is great. Really imposing and big. Very beautiful to look at. The interior of the church is also great.
  • Wasn’t on my itinerary but glad I went. Architecture is beautiful; the stained glass windows were detailed and stately. Make sure you stop by here for a quick look when passing by.
