The big bell – guided tour


Young people who misbehaved were locked up in its jails with thick doors and huge bolts. The jokers said they were staying at the Hôtel du Lion d'Or, an allusion to the weather vane in the central dome actually representing the king of beasts, one of the symbols of the kings of England.
This door is open to visitors. A guide will accompany you in these strange dungeons still inhabited by the memories of those who did not respect the curfew or public order.
La Grosse Cloche is part of the network of remarkable sites "Les Iconiques en Gironde".
