Grosse Cloche de Bordeaux, Bordeaux
(4.6/5 based on 480 reviews on the web)
Grosse Cloche de Bordeaux is all that remains of an ancient entrance into the city. In years past, the bell rang for important events, such as the coming harvest or to alert the populace to a fire. The bell has always been important to the citizens. When Henry II wanted to punish them, he took the bell away.

Tour the ancient gate, the bell (this version was cast in 1775), and an astronomical clock that was added in 1759. While the bell doesn’t ring often, it offers visitors a striking sight in the heart of the city.

  • An of the doors that remain and that deserves the penalty show. It is somewhat hidden from the main road that passes perpendicular and somewhat boxed. Look at the Bell and clock.

  • As its name suggests, big Bell very pretty to see in the center of Bordeaux. Sound at the height of its vastness.

  • Worth the detour as it is located in a nice Street and it is a quite unusual well preserved construction.

  • Arrêtez-vous un moment pour l'observer :)

  • It is the archetype of the building that we pass without attention, and yet... As this pest and less faithful, you will find a major city, preserved time and very well integrated into the architectural Park building. Visited and well maintained, do not pass side!
