Grosse Cloche de Bordeaux, Bordeaux

(4.7/5 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.

  • 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!
