Recommended
The first city in France to be liberated in 1944, the capital of Bessin is a pleasant spot where old houses nestle amidst tranquil medieval alleys at the foot of its Gothic cathedral. It is also the cradle of the ducal dynasty of Normandy; in 905, the first of these great local lords, Duke William Longsword was born here ... today it's renowned for the extraordinary and world-renowned Bayeux Tapestry.
