Top of the North Tower
Caption
Top of the north tower (1542) of Bourges Cathedral, with bell, weathervane, bronze Pelican-in-Her-Piety and various modern contraptions. The tower is known as the Tour de Beurre (Butter Tower), since it was funded by granting donors an exemption from fasting during Lent. It takes 396 steps to reach the top.
