Description

This fortified gateway was also a prison. Young delinquents were thrown into its dungeons fitted with thick doors and stout locks. The wits joked that they were lodging at the Golden Lion Hotel, an allusion to the weather vane on the central dome representing the king of beasts, one of the symbols of the Kings of England.



This belfry of Bordeaux's medieval city hall has stood guard over the intersection of the cours Victor Hugo and the rue Saint-James since the 14th century. Bordeaux's Big Ben is one of the city's most striking emblems.
