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 came to Bayeux to see the tapestry. The cathedral was a bonus. I enjoyed the angels in the crypt in particular.

This was my second time visiting and I was able to enjoy it much more as I didn't feel rushed. Beautiful structure!

Be sure to see the light show which is every Tuesday and Thursday night. The cathedral is beautiful inside and dominates the area with its size.

The Cathedral of Norte-Dame in Bayeux dates from the 11th century and is a great example of Norman Gothic architecture. We actually went to Bayeux to see the tapestries, but loved the Cathedral just as much.

Our whole family have been returning to this beautiful cathedral in Bayeux for the past 4 years. It's so amazing to step inside and feel the atmosphere, often there is organ music playing which adds to the ambience. The architecture outside is just stunning and...More

This cathedral is incredible. It is a miracle it escaped damage during WWII. It is absolutely beautiful compared to others in France.

There is no fee to enter the building, very beautiful inside and outside as well. It' wasn't crowded.
