"Bayeaux -- Gold Beach" Bayeux by Ewingjr98

Bayeux Travel Guide: 196 reviews and 595 photos

Bayeaux is located just south of the center invasion beach of World War II's Operation Overlord, the Invasion of Normandy. On D-Day this beach was codenamed "Gold".

This town of about 15,000 is most well known for its 13th Century Gothic cathedral called Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Bayeux and the ancient Bayeux Tapestry that depicts England's fall to the Normans.

    Nice page and historical references. I did not realize that portions of the Mulberries still remained. I would like to visit Normandy sometime. - Steve
