Built by one of the great archbishops of Bordeaux in the 1440s, Tour Pey-Berland was supposed to house the bells for St. Andre's cathedral to protect the building from vibrations. However, the bells never came. The tower ended up being used for housing and later was a shotgun pellet factory. In 1851, it was restored, and three bells that are controlled from the cathedral were installed. Today, you can tour the tower, visit its collection of bells, and take in the view of the city from the top of the tower. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Bordeaux holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tour Pey-Berland and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Amazing view. Be prepared for a climb in a narrow spiral staircase -- same staircase up and down. Tight squeeze. Once you get to the top, the views will impress.

  • Well presented. Good views of city. Good explanations and information. Book your time in advance. Not for the claustrophobic or vertigo sufferers
  • Great view and a nice history of the city is on displays near the top. Stop to talk to the people working downstairs because they are a font of knowledge and super friendly! Admission is included in the city pass.
