The Bayeux cathedral



Pure jewel of Norman architecture located in the heart of the protected area, the laying of the first stone of Bayeux Cathedral was on 14 July 1077 by Bishop Odon of Conteville in the presence of his illustrious brother, William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy and King of England. It has been said that it was to adorn the nave of the cathedral that Odon had the Bayeux Tapestry embroidered, a masterpiece of the Middle Ages
