The Belfry ...

Let's leave the enclosure of the City Hall by folowing the Enghien's Street and let's take to the left before climbing the Cronque Street which is so called because its course is sinuous.




We arrived at the foot of the Belfry, which is a good example of the Mons's baroque style (XVIIth century). This stoned tower is 87 metres high. It overlook the city and give to Mons its particular silhouette. It contains, into the top, a 49 bells carillon. Victor Hugo described it as: "a coffepot flanked over four smaller teapots".
