We step on American soil, and there is nobody like them to honor their dead. The silence and recollection is as thunderous as the thousands of headstones neatly aligned and maintained. The landscape is very well cared for, and you can learn about the evolution of the Normandy Landings from the permanent exhibition there. A must visit.
Bayeux Cathedral is one of the most impressive expressions of Gothic and French Romanesque architecture. It is situated in the center of the village, and you have to walk quite a bit to get there, because there is no public parking next to it. I recommend that you take a guided tour. It is definitely worth it if you truly want to learn about and enjoy all its treasures, such as the room where the famous Bayeux Tapestry was made, its splendid windows, or imposing facade. Everything makes it worth it.
