  • Guided tour compulsory and at the same time to enjoy the exceptional mechanism of this clock outside the norm. Learn more about schedules before you go because this is really worth the cost. The guide is exciting.

  • Lower room of the Bell Tower, guided tour. This marvel of mechanics are 30,000 parts!, was designed and executed from 1858 to 1860 by Auguste Lucien Vérité, Beauvais, and reorganized in 1900 by F. Goudey, Besançon. She serves as a public clock, because it transmits time in 57 dials of the Bell Tower. These indicate the days, the seasons, the hours in 16 points of the globe, the tides in 8 ports, the duration of the day and night, the sunrises and sunsets of the Sun and the moon... and, at the bottom of the clock, the movement of the planets around the Sun. A series of automata comes alive at fixed time; It is the death and resurrection of Christ.
