Bayeux is even more historic than the rest of Normandy, and that says a lot. It was founded in the first century B.C. and is the home of the famous Bayeux tapestry, which tells the story of William of Normandy's conquest of England. William's half brother was the bishop of Bayeux.

Bayeux has been preserved where possible and restored where necessary and now serves as a center for D-Day tourism. We visited with Sue and Laurie Stoll, who so kindly took us on a day trip in their car to Omaha Beach and Bayeax. Omaha Beach and the cathedral in Bayeux have their own photo pages.
