  • The Norman cathedrals are awe inspiring yet they are also cold and gray and not as ornate as cathedrals in Italy and Spain. They also have less artwork but this one and many others are well worth a vi...  more »
  • The cathedral really stands out over the town of Bayeux, and the tower/steeple is spectacular, especially when lit up at night.  more »
  • It's always impressive to visit these monuments. A height under incredible Vault. Of beautiful stained glass. An architecture that would pale more than an architect. Beautiful Cathedral which deserves that he spends an hour (or less if you're fast)

  • The main Cathedral is really nice and they had an interesting video showing on the huge liberty tree behind the church. The down town area is not nice but around the cathedral it is much nicer and there are some good restaurants. Mainly a great central location to visit the surrounding area including the landing beaches.
  • Beautiful cathedral!
  • Very pretty Cathedral. Allow several hours to visit fully.
