Bayeux is a major tourist attraction because of its importance in two military campaigns, the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and its proximity to the D-Day landing beaches. It is a picturesque community that draws historians, tourists and World War II veterans from all over the world and it a good base to explore Normandy.
The three major attractions in Bayeux are the D-Day beaches, the Bayeux Cathedral, and the world-famous Bayeux Tapestry, that commemorates William the Conqueror and the Battle of Hastings. The large Norman-Romanesque and Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Bayeux was consecrated in 1077 and was the original home of the tapestry. Today, it is displayed in a museum in the town center.
