  • The Cathedral Notre-Dame de Bayeux is one of the masterpieces of Romanesque and Gothic architecture Norman. It was dedicated July 14 10771 and made an integral part of a remarkably preserved episcopal set. It is for her that was carried out the famous Bayeux Tapestry. It is being classified as historical monuments. The crypt: it dates from the Roman period. Located under the choir, she was bricked up during the construction of the Gothic choir, then forgotten for a century and a half. It was rediscovered by chance in 1412 when it came to dig the grave of a bishop.

  • Beautifully maintained Norman cathedral. Missing some of the original stained glass windows owing to war damage but it is still a magnificent edifice.
  • A trip to Bayeux must include a visit to this cathedral. Absolutely stunning.
  • One of the most amazing churches I have ever seen! France is lucky to have such an amazing Cathedral! It's amazing to think that people built this intricate building back in the day! Definitely worth checking out!
  • Beautiful edifice in a quaint city
  • Pretty cathedral
