Overview

The beauty of Bayeux, untouched by history

Bayeux, it is not only housing a tapestry, it is so much more

Bayeux is a touristic little city located in Normandy, northwestern France. With some 13 000 inhabitants, the town, despite the damages of World War II in the region, can boast about possessing an important cultural and architectural heritage.

About France

Bayeux is world-famous for preserving its precious 11th century tapestry, also called Queen Mathilde Tapestry, which is 70 meters long!

Go to explore it and let you count the history of the conquest of England by William the Conqueror. In the charming centre, do not miss the cathedral Notre Dame of Bayeux, dedicated in 1077 in the presence of William the Conqueror, and embellished during the 13th and 15th century. Head the Battle of Normandy Memorial Museum and discover what happened the days after the terrible battle.

You will also find in Bayeux the largest british military cemetery of France, and the conservatory of lace, aiming for conserving this lacemaker craft tradition.
