Bayeux, Normandy

Bayeux is a medieval town rich in history and one of the only main towns in the area not to be destroyed during the war. It is rich in not only World War II history, but the famous Bayeux Tapestry is located here and this was William the Conqueror's stomping ground.

The Bayeux Cathedral 

is a Norman-Romanesque cathedral and was the original home of the Bayeux Tapestry.

The first night we ate at this Creperie and it was delicious, but like everywhere in Europe was expensive.

We found it best to buy food from the Boulangerie, which we did the second night and ate next to the Cathedral.
