Bayeux : The Gate of Normandy Landing Beaches.

Bayeux is known for two famous trans-Channel invasions. The conquest of England by William the Conqueror in 1066 started from Bayeux, while on June 6th, 1944 the Allied D-Day  invasion force struck the beaches just north of the town.

Bayeux was the first French town to be liberated from Nazi occupation during the 1944 Battle of Normandy and survived almost completely unscathed. On 16 June 1944 General Charles de Gaulle made his first important speech on liberated French soil in Bayeux. The town  is an excellent base for visiting the Normandy beaches. ( Wiki  News )
