Bayeux was John's first European cathedral and a good one to show some of the range of cathedral architecture. It has a Roman crypt in keeping with Bayeux's Roman roots and flying buttresses more reminiscent of Gothic architecture. Fortunately, the Allies liked to use cathedrals as landmarks, and this one was spared major damage in WWII. We learned from Sue that some of the stained glass windows were stored elsewhere during the war to protect them from damage.

Thanks again to Sue and Laurie for bringing us here.
