Take a tour of Bayeux Cathedral in Bayeux, France — part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Bayeux Cathedral is an ornate, Norman-Romanesque sanctuary and a treasured jewel in the town of Bayeux, France.
The cathedral was erected periodically between the 11th and 13th centuries and later was remodeled into a 13th century Gothic monument.
Underneath the massive structure lies an ancient crypt that houses murals of biblical figures.
Within the interior chapel and main altar, Bayeux’s collection of stained glass windows are on display.
The house of prayer is also the first known abode of the Bayeux Tapestry; a famous embroidery that illustrates the Norman annexation of England.
Either standing under the French sun, or lit up in the night sky, Bayeux Cathedral towers over the city in grand distinction.
