Discover Bayeux with a Local

 

The Cathedral

Visit the Cathedral, which date back to the end of Roman times. In the 11th century, Normandy was rich and when Duke William conquered England in 1066, he decided to help his half-brother, Bishop Odon, to build a huge building site. It was built in the Romanesque style of the times.

On July 14th, 1077 it was dedicated to Our Lady. William and Queen Mathilda attended the celebration. It was probably on that very day that the Bayeux Tapestry was exhibited there for the first time.

Bayeux’s UNESCO Tapestry

Bishop Odon is thought to have commissioned the famous Bayeux Tapestry. For centuries, it was kept inside the cathedral and was only exhibited once a year, when it was hung in the nave. The chest that has been sheltering it since the 15th century still exists.

The Bayeux Tapestry is in fact an embroidery. With its 58 scenes and their Latin captions, it relates the conquest of England in 1066 by William, Duke of Normandy. It is almost 70 meters long and 50 cm high.
