We've been to see the Cathedral in November. What fasinated me was how the mosaic windows playing their part in lighting up the walls: it looks like amazing.

This is one of the best cathedrals I have looked around in France - on a par with Notredame in Paris. It is well preserved, in great condition and in a fantastic setting in the centre of Bayeux. Well worth a visit.

The highlight of Bayeux and well worth a visit. Parking is available on the street for a small fee. Stop and enjoy numerous shops and cafes on the surrounding streets.

The cathedral dominates the skyline of Bayeux and is the center point of a visit into town. Make sure you allow time for a visit inside - beautiful stained glass glows in the afternoon light.

This beautiful cathedral is most impressive. It was built over a thousand years ago and is just magnificent as it stands out above Bayeux. Surprisingly is was almost completely spared during WWII. Well worth the visit.

You can’t miss this cathedral as you drive into Bayeux, as it dominates the landscape of the small town— but make sure you take the time to go inside. I enjoyed it more than Notre Dame in Paris. Incredible look at church history and architecture...More

Very moving and beautiful. The entire church and its stain glass windows are impressive. The chapel for peace and the memorials for the brave veterans of WWI and WWII evoke strong emotions.

The cathedral Notre Dame of Bayeux was dedicated with William the Conquer in attendance. The current building has many gothic and later additions. It is well worth seeing. It’s in Bayeux.
