Bayeux – A Town of Norman Architecture

In the northern department of Normandy, you’ll find the stunning town of Bayeux. By no means one of the larger towns in France, but certainly one worth visiting, nonetheless. Having been one of the few towns spared during the war, the town has preserved a rich architectural heritage.


The town of Bayeux is most commonly visited for its Bayeux Tapestry. This impressive hand-embroidered cloth depicts the events of the Norman conquest of England. It is believed to date from the 11th century, and the cloth which it is embroidered on is 70 meters long and 50 centimeters tall. Truly unlike anything else in Europe!

Originally the tapestry was kept within the Cathedral of Our Lady of Bayeux. This Cathedral in itself truly is quite a spectacular sight with its Norman-Romanesque architectural design. The Cathedral is a national monument and is the seat of the Bishop of Bayeux and Lisieux. Today, however, the tapestry is exhibited in its very own museum, the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux.


There are many other museums within the town besides that of the Tapestry Museum. Bayeux is also home the impressive Museum of the Battle of Normandy, the Bayeux Memorial Grounds, and the whimsical Baron Gerard Museum of Art and History.


This town certainly is a goldmine of historical attractions!
