Looked great from the ground but the queue to climb to the top barely moved in half an hour. Disappointed to have to give up as I was advised the views from the top were well worth the climb. Got some nice pictures though.

The Pey Berland tower is a belfry of the magnificent St. Andre Cathedral, built separately beside it, in order to spare the Cathedral of huge bells vibrations when ringing. We wanted to climb it for the views, but at 5.15 PM we were not admitted....More

The 15th Century bell tower belonging to the adjacent Cathedral. Well worth the climb to the top for the city views (you have to squeee through a couple of quite narrow doorways). If there's a queue, maybe walk to La Fleche instead?

The bell tower is a fine compliment to the imposing St Andre cathedral. Long queues outside meant we didn’t wait to climb to the top of the tower which would have given great photo ops.

Whatever location we visit if there is a tower to climb we nearly always have to climb it. Our visit to Bordeaux was no exception and Pey-Berland did not disappoint. It's 233 steps up a narrow spiral stone staircase with 3 passing places before the...More
