Bayeux Cathedral, also called the Cathedral of Our Lady of Bayeux (French: Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Bayeux), is a cathedral. It is in Bayeux, in Normandy. The current cathedral was consecrated on July 14, 1077. It is part of a larger complex, a bishop's palace. It was built as a replacement for an earlier church which dated from the Merovingian era. It was here that Harold Godwinson swore an oath[1] that later led to the Norman Conquest.
