On the way back, and after trying to see the landing beaches despite the rain caught us, stop in Bayeux.
We pass by the imposing Cathedral of Norman Gothic style.
Four small polychrome statues of the thirteenth century.
In the cathedral every year for 400 years, hung the famous Bayeux Tapestry. The latter was 70 meters long. This is actually an embroidery son from 4 color perfectly preserved. It dates from 1066 It tells the Battle of Hastings William the Bastard seen passing under William the Conqueror and King of England. Work of propaganda, it also shows that perjury is divinely punished.
The photos below are only a pale reflection of the real tapestry. Really, go see this masterpiece. The presentation is made is captivating.
