Description

Connected to the façade of the cathedral via a Renaissance gallery, this remarkable bell tower was built in the late 13C; its massive form is elegantly crowned by an octagonal 14C storey. Its astronomical clock, which dates back to 1583, stands out for its illustrations of the stars and the constellations of the zodiac. From the top of the tower (a height of 112.27m), there are lovely views of the town.
