  • Beautiful cathedral. An organist was playing when we entered which made it even better. The grotto was gorgeous. Well worth a visit.

  • We dropped in to see the cathedral after a morning van tour. Great example of Gothic architecture. It is centrally located.

  • In the centre of Bayeux, this grand cathedral is towering over its environment. Bayeux is a small town. It is easy to find your way around. The cathedral has stunning glass in lead windows and a high arching architecture. The entrance is free and 2.50€ lets you light a candle for peace or dedication. On Monday when we visited, it was not busy.
  • I went when the organs were playing, so the music definitely added to the ambiance and the grand architecture. The church is free to enter and is near so many local shops. It’s a good place to escape the rainy weather Normandy is notorious for.
