Landmarks and Historic Buildings

This splendid cathedral is a magnificent example of Gothic architecture. Originally built to a Romanesque design in the 11th century, very little of the original architecture remains as it has been rebuilt over time. During the Wars of Religion, the cathedral suffered greatly with much of the furniture, stalls and organ destroyed in 1562. Formerly the home of the Bayeux Tapestry, the cathedral has some beautiful stained glass windows and is a serene place to spend some time in reflection.
