4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web
Built by one of the great archbishops of Bordeaux in the 1440s, Tower of Pey-Berland was supposed to house the bells for St. Andre's cathedral to protect the building from vibrations. However, the bells never came. The tower ended up being used for housing and later was a shotgun pellet factory. In 1851, it was restored, and three bells that are controlled from the cathedral were installed. Today, you can tour the tower, visit its collection of bells, and take in the view of the city from the top of the tower.

  • Flamboyant Gothic style bell tower Tour Pey-Berland is worth visiting much more, than the Tour Saint Michelle. Both upper balconies are open, the price is the same for adult, but for students 26- is free. Beautiful views all over Bordeaux.
  • Exceptional view of the city. The visit's content is somewhat limited compared to the price. Free entrance on first Sunday of each month.
  • Wonderful view. You can see all of Bordeaux very clearly. Free for EU citizens between the ages of 18-25. Well worth the stairs.
  • Amazing 360 degree views from the top!
  • Le Panier d'Eve, Magasin d'alimentation, produits du terroir Centre commercial Saint Christoly Place Pey Berland Bordeaux
