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.

It is worth visiting the cathedral which is close to the Museum that houses the tapestry. The tourist train also departs from outside the Cathedral .

Do not miss this incredible cathedral, a church building bigger than Notre Dame in Paris. The building is beautifully illuminated at night and if you have a chance to attend an organ concert or mass....do go.

You're in Bayeux and, apart from the magnificent tapestry, you must see this cathedral. Glorious, majestic building and we were lucky to be there when somebody was practising on the organ. A little concert of our very own. And it was free to walk in...More

A monument that spans a millennium. Splendid architecture. A must see when in the Normandy area. Take time to walk through it and read exhibits.

My family calls me a "C & C" traveler...castles and cathedrals, and this is now one of my favorites. It's not as imposing as others I've visited, which, I think, makes it special. It has the requisite abundant stained-glass windows which are exquisite, but there...More
