Porte de la Grosse Cloche

Interesting
With its two towers and large bell, this gate is an emblem of Bordeaux. Saved from demolition when a larger belfry structure was taken down, the gate is greatly loved by the people of the town, to the extent that when the kings were unhappy with the townsfolk, they confiscated the bell and clocks!
