Having beaches famed for being the landing point for British troops during World War II, Normandy is a popular holiday destination for people who may have a personal connection through family members, or who are interested in actions that took place during the war.
The region of Bayeux is worthy of a visit by those who are fascinated by historical attractions because it is home to the Tapestry Museum that has the Bayeux Tapestry; the UNESCO designated 70-metre length of embroidery that displays the story of the Battle of Hastings. It is where you will find the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, an 11th century church that is a notable example of gothic Norman architecture.
Another UNESCO designated World Heritage Site in the region is Mont Saint-Michel, an imposing abbey built in the 12th century in a gothic style. Many people make a pilgrimage to the vast building that can be found on the border between Normandy and Brittany and are not only treated to the impressive architecture, but also to stunning views.
Visit the Château de Caen in Caen to admire the 11th century building before entering it for the Musée de Normandie (Normandy Museum) and the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts). There you will be able to admire many works of art, historic items, and obtain a good overview of the culture and background of the region.
