Domtoren

Recommended
Built from 1321 to 1382 in the Gothic style and restored at the start of the century, this campanile influenced many native belfries. It is the highest one in the country. It was once linked by an arch to the nave of the cathedral that was destroyed in 1674 by a hurricane which devastated the town. Its three stepped back storeys rise elegantly to a height of 112m. The bells of the carillon are by the Hemony brothers. From the upper gallery there is a magnificent panoramic view over the town and the province.
