Welcome to the Villa Lara

TAPESTRY MUSEUM

tapisserie de bayeux

The Bayeux Tapestry is an embroidery, 70 meters long, made in the 11th century. It is listed as a “Memory of the World” by UNESCO.

Celebrating the conquest of England by William, Duke of Normandy, this linen canvas was embroidered after the Battle of Hastings on October 14th, 1066, probably in a monastery in the south of England.

Viking ships and Norman and Saxon cavalries illustrate the exploits of William and his opponent Harold, another pretender to the throne of England.
