The Bayeux Tapestry (Normandy)
The Normans' achievements in England in the beginning of the last millennium are depicted thoroughly at this 70-meter long embroidered tapestry. The tapestry hang in Bayeux Cathedral until the revolutionary Frenchmen severed the links to the past and decided that the valuable cloth could be used to cover a wagon. Now this important historical evidence has been saved, restored and is admired by travellers from all over the world.
The Mountain of Saint Michel (Normandy)
This small mountain is only connected to the mainland when the tide wishes it to be so. At other times it appears as an isolated rock island with its own convent. Here a few monks still live, pray and try to protect the holy buildings from being run over by tourists. The island is almost a distinct community and has a Medieval town where you can spend the night.
The Town Rouen (Normandy)
In this town Jeanne d'Arc ended her days at the fire at Place du Vieux Marché in 1432. The city has also housed Richard the Lionhearted. Rouen has a beautiful cathedral, which has been depicted in several of Monet's paintings.
