Long Description:
On the four corners of the bell tower you will find holding the town shields.This bell tower was built in the 17th century on the site of a former medieval gate, to
replacement of the clock of the église Saint-Michel. Side of town you can see a dial with the days of the week
and from the "Faubourg" (outside the city) an image of the lunar cycle. Decisive for the choice of the
location was exposure to the Mistral for a better distribution of the bells.
