  • Only had a few minutes to view this city-center cathedral, but was impressed with its beauty and the space it occupied.

  • One of my favorite Cathedrals throughout our stay in France. It was very beautiful and historic. The colors at night are also quite a treat and highlight the architecture.

  • Even as an atheist, I was really impressed with the grandeur and majesty of this building. Walking through it you can feel the history in every corner. Incredible to imagine all the resources and effort that went into building it so long ago and maintaining it for all that time. Really glad it (and the town) was not impacted by significant WW2 bombing.
  • 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.
