Details

The Abbey church bell tower of Brantôme dates from the 11th century. It is one of the oldest campanile type bell towers in France. It has the peculiarity of being an independent tower standing on a 12m-high natural outcropping against which the Abbey church is built. The architecture is typical of the Romanesque style which flourished in the Limousin region and is characterised by the use of gables which crown the round-arched openings and by the superposition of four recessed floors. Its summit is crowned by a stone quadrangular pyramid. Guided tours from April to October.
