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.

This beautiful old cathedral has heard the footsteps of William the Conqueror of 1066. It was not bombed by the Allies or the Germans during War World II.

I am not a religious person but found the visit to Notre Dame very impressive form an inspirational point of view and from an architectural perspective (although I am also not an architect). In any case a must visit when you are in Bayeux.

This is not the most beautiful church you’ll see in France, but it does have lots to see, including an accessible crypt. I think every visitor to Bayeux stops in at some point.

A lovely cathedral built over hundreds of years and miraculously totally unscathed in WW2. Peaceful and calming on a cold November day. Well worth a visit.

This is a very pretty cathedral with a long, impressive nave. It is not particularly ornate, but there is some nice stained glass, including some rare 13th century pieces above the alter. Worth a visit during the day and also at night when the exterior...More
