Worth the climb to get an aerial view of Bordeaux. Get there early though as they only take 19 up at a time and it closes in the middle of the day.

233 steps up a spiral stone staircase, so wear decent shoes. Views are unbelievable of the whole city. Just be aware, it is windy up top. Also be careful as the stairway is narrow, with a rope bannister only on one side

There is a charge to go up the Pey Berland Tower - 6 euros per person which affords you views of Bordeaux. Or, you can enjoy the great architecture of this building from the outside.

This is the climb you need to do if you want brilliant views of Bordeaux. At 233 steps or is within the abilities of most people. If you are claustrophic you might want to consider the fact that the circular stone stairs are quite narrow,...More

Looked great from the ground but the queue to climb to the top barely moved in half an hour. Disappointed to have to give up as I was advised the views from the top were well worth the climb. Got some nice pictures though.

The Pey Berland tower is a belfry of the magnificent St. Andre Cathedral, built separately beside it, in order to spare the Cathedral of huge bells vibrations when ringing. We wanted to climb it for the views, but at 5.15 PM we were not admitted....More
