Conservatoire de la Dentelle de Bayeux

Behind the façade of this residence, known as the "House of Adam and Eve" because of the wood sculptures of religious figures and characters taken from legends who are depicted here, lace-makers continue Bayeux's tradition of needlepoint work. This bobbin lace is characterised by its floral motifs. The workshop-boutique has a number of fine examples on display.
