Bayeux Tapestry



The famous Bayeux Tapestry is among the many museums not to be missed in Calvados.

Listed on Unesco's Memory of the World register since 2007, the Bayeux Tapestry is a genuine masterpiece of Roman art. This embroidery on a linen canvas was produced in the 11th century and measures 70m in length for a height of 50cm. In the form of a series of scenes, the tapestry tells the story of William the Conqueror's conquest over England. It offers a unique testimony of medieval life in Europe. Tour lasts: 30 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes.
