Grosse Cloche

The Grosse Cloche de Bordeaux, literally the Big Bell of Bordeaux, is a belfry on the old Medieval Town Hall, above a former dungeon for juveniles. You can see two 40 meter towers standing to the sides of a central building. The 18th-century bell has an impressive weight of 7,800 kilograms and rings out to mark special occasions.
