Toulouse bell tower

Toulouse bell tower

There are two main churches in Toulouse and they had a competition to see who could build the tallest octagonal bell tower. This is the Basilique St. Sernin. It was started in 1096 and finished in 1220. The bell tower was rebuilt in the late 13th century to clinch the title of tallest bell tower in Toulouse.
