Pey-Berland Tower, Bordeaux

4.4
Built by one of the great archbishops of Bordeaux in the 1440s, Pey-Berland Tower 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.

  • Great views of Bordeaux and the Cathedral. Amazing panorama shots. Unfortunately there are metal wires stretched across the top as a safety measure, so there is abstracted view from the top balcony...  more »

  • Place to visit of you are thinking to visit Bordeaux. It's in the city center nearby the town hall. Very clean and elegant, the moment showed how the city has been changed during the centuries.
  • Must visit - I’m non EU - it just doesn’t matter (to me!!!). Fantastic history, superlative experience- spectacular aerial view. Can’t go wrong, if you are ABLe to climb, whatever the number of steps there are....
