Cathédrale Notre-Dame

Cathédrale Notre-Dame Review

Bayeux's mightiest edifice, the Cathédrale Notre-Dame, is a harmonious mixture of Norman and Gothic architecture. Note the portal on the south side of the transept that depicts the assassination of English archbishop Thomas à Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170, following his courageous opposition to King Henry II's attempts to control the church. On weekdays in July and August, guided tours are offered between 10 and 2.
