  • 聖雅各伯塔(Tour Saint-Jacques)位於法國首都巴黎的市中心,是法國巴黎第四區的一座歌德式塔樓,高54米,是昔日屠宰場聖雅各伯教堂(Saint-Jacques-la-Boucherie)僅存的遺蹟,被聯合國教科文組織列為世界遺產法國聖雅各伯朝聖之路的一部分。塔樓周圍的公園於2009年4月才重新對公眾開放,非常值得一遊。 
  • The Tower saint Jacques in Paris is a unique must-see Paris monument. Unfortunately when we visited the square was closed to visitors, it was curly locks. A small sign informs us that following several complaints from local residents that there was a current ratting. Really too bad.

  • Visited this beautiful gothic Tower, with a height of 52 meters, after recent restoration it looks somewhat artificial crowns the lonely tower top. the statue of Saint James of the sculptor Shen'on. But the tower was not always alone, in the old days it was the hugest Bell Tower of the Church, which occupied the entire area of the current cozy square surrounding the tower it was Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie is an ancient Church in Paris, located at the intersection of main roads, including the road to the South, the trail of pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela shrine located in Spain. Donate to the Church wealthy butchers, rich bourgeois. Here is buried the famous Alchemist Nicolas Flamel, miraculously survived and headstone with an inscription with the name of famous Church of the XVII century the great mathematician Blaise Pascal, who has climbed to the top of the tower and there tested their discoveries about gravity and Earth emptiness. It is said that it was here that he came up with his hydraulic press Tower. Recommend to visit after a walk on the Rivoli.
