BAYEUX, HISTORIC CITY

Bayeux, historic city

The medieval town of Bayeux, in Normandy, is a jewel at the heart of history. From the cathedral consecrated in the presence of William the Conqueror and Mathilde, the first city in France to be liberated on June 14, 1944 with the arrival of General de Gaulle, to the remains of the Allied landing in 1944, to the famous Bayeux tapestry and the tree of freedom planted during the Revolution, everything here is a monument. The narrow streets and sculpted facades of the private mansions are a continuous reminder of time and the splendour of the past.

Renowned for the quality of its shops, visitors can discover 15 minutes from the city, the landing beaches for relaxation or for history, the American, English, Canadian and German cemeteries… Golf lovers will also find here, between the greenery of the countryside and the beaches of Omaha, the only 36 holes in northern France.
Finally, the Bessin, like all of Normandy and in the very heart of Bayeux, offers a wide choice of French cuisine.
