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.

If you are in town it's worth a quick visit , but I wouldn't go out of my way to travel just to see it.

When we were there, someone was practicing on the organ. This somehow made the visit that little bit more special. This is a nice cathedral with very bright stained glass windows. There are no 'guardians' like in other places and so you can tour at...More

Unbelievably beautiful, it has undergone many repairs, consecrated in the presence of William the Conqueror in 1077. A treasure from the 9th Century.

It is a big, beautiful, VERY old cathedral in a small town. Dedicated in 1077. Amazing. But as an attraction, it was fine. The work done well over 1000 years ago makes this something amazing

Worth seeing if you are in Bayeux Tapestry. Another part of Norman history, but there are better churches to see.

Beautiful, do the research on the history as well and it enriches it so much more! Evening visit, not crowded, lots of areas to take photos. Make sure to visit all the chapels, very interesting!

This attraction could probably benefit from more complete historical information presented throughout the cathedral. As an example, the Bayeux tapestry featured in its own museum close by was once displayed in this cathedral, but no where that I saw was that fact mentioned in the...More

The Notre Dame Cathedral in Bayeux is definitely worth a look. I loved the wall with a recognition of local who died in WWI, plus the wall dedicated to the Allies who liberated the town. And the role the church played over the centuries.
