A tower with a view.

The first bell tower of the Cathedral of Saint-André, dating from the 12th centurywas no longer strong enough to support the weight of all the bells, especially the great bell that was going to be added. A new bell tower therefore needed to be constructed, detached from the cathedral itself: the Pey-Berland Tower therefore came to be in 1440. Atop it was an arrow, replaced in 1617 by a cross after a storm tore it off.
In 1853 a great bell was hung from the beams of the belfry. With its 11 ton weight, it is the fourth largest in France. You'll need some courage for the visit: to climb to the top of the tower, which stands at a height of 50 meters, you will need to climb some 229 steps. But your efforts will be suitably rewarded with a magnificent view over the entire city of Bordeaux.
