  • Magnificent exhibition entitled "creative spirit, the dressing of the bishops revisited". We stumbled upon this exhibition a little by chance by visiting the Cathedral of Bayeux, at the heritage days. Congratulations to the organizers: fascinating Expo we bought the catalogue to prolong the memory.
