Visiting the Tour Pey-Beyland, Bordeaux
All year long
You'll need to summon all your strength before attacking the 231 steps of the Tour Pey-Beylend, but once you get to the top, it will have been well worth the effort, as you will be able to enjoy a stunning view of Bordeaux.
This elaborately decorated tower is the bell tower of Saint-André Cathedral. Built between 1440 and 1446 under the Archbishop Pey-Berland, the tower houses the famous Ferdinand-André bell, and stands isolated from the rest of the cathedral.
