Don't call a Belfry a bell tower! These tall, secular buildings used to stand in the middle of the northern cities as watchtowers to sound the alarm when danger approached. It is in memory of this tradition that the belfry of Lille was built in 1932. Signed by the architect Emile Dubuisson, it is a very modern tribute to the time since it was built entirely in bricks and reinforced concrete (the great novelty of the time). The belfry is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and can be visited every day from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5.30pm, and takes you 104 metres above the ground for a breathtaking view!
