    Bayeux Tapestry


Only six miles from the D-Day beaches, Bayeux was the first city liberated after the landing and the closest city to the D-Day landing site not destroyed in the war. Even without its famous medieval tapestry and proximity to the D-Day beaches, Bayeux would be worth a visit for its enjoyable town center and awe-inspiring cathedral, beautifully illuminated at night.
