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.

We. toured the Notre Dame cathedral and were very impressed. The exterior and interior architecture is quite impressive and something special. If you are visiting the D-Day beaches, the cathedral is worth a visit.

The Cathedral is in the heart of Bayeux. The archictecture is amazing both inside and out. The inside is beautiful. Take the time to visit and enjoy. If you have the time, try to attend mass and enjoy celebrating in a wonderful church.

We have been to lots of old churches in Europe. This one was well worth the visit. It was built in the 11th C and 13th C. Has some magnificent details.

This is a beautiful cathedral. It has many beautiful stained glass windows - the colours and so many designs are simply breath taking. There are many little alcoves with statues and paintings as well as a very ornate alter and a crypt. I would certainly...More

View the spires from the town first and admire the red side door with its tableau and gargoyles nearby. Inside, look up - arches and vaults. View the wall paintings, relatively newly discovered and restored. Go down to the crypt which existed in the time...More

Relax and spend a few quiet contemplative moments in the Cathedral. Be impressed by the light through the stained glass. Look to the outside for changes in the architectural styles as it was built over a number of centuries.

The cathedral is beautiful. Outside is a must see after sunset when illuminated by lights. The architecture outside is almost delicate in appearance. Visit the inside during the day to get the effects made by natural light. Beautiful.

My wife and I attended Sunday Mass at 10:30 a.m. and although the Mass was Italian, it was beautiful and of course easy to follow, since the liturgy worldwide is the same. On Monday, we returned to tour this most beautiful Cathedral, which fortunately was...More

Take a few minutes to go inside this beautiful cathedral and marvel at the architecture and stained glass windows. Afterwards, go outside and look up at the 'gargoyles' that are at the top of the cathedral. Beautiful!

Excellent visit to Bayeux. This cathedral is not to be missed. Even ongoing reconstruction did not dampen our enthusiasm for this majestic structure.
