Tall - 23 meters from sea level, decent width (another 13 meters), the tower was erected as a kind of fortification base of The Maluin shafts in the second half of the 15th century in the northwest corner of d'Intra-Muros. During its existence, the tour has repeatedly changed its name: Bidouet, Tour des Champs-Vauverts, Tour de la Cloche. The tower acquired its current "name" only in 1691, when it was placed in the powder reserve of the garrison of Saint-Malo. It was on this tower that the Anglo-Dutch brandet was "attacked" on November 29, 1693, "stuffed" with gunpowder and cart. But the storm intervened and threw the brander on to the reefs, where it exploded safely. From the top of the tower you can just take pictures of the bay area with its islands and forts, as well as pictures of the Old City, "bored" in the frame of the walls.
Its a nice place for great views over the bay and beach. Start your rampart walk from here or go down on to the beach during low tide. Be careful of speedy winds. Take a lot of pictures of the town and the English Channel.
Lovely views of the bay.
