Title
North Tower Stairs
Caption
Some of the 396 steps up the north tower of Bourges Cathedral, which was rebuilt in 1542. It is known as the Tour de Beurre (Butter Tower), since it was funded by granting donors an exemption from fasting during Lent. Thanks to the tower's relative youth, the stairs are a bit wider and larger than in most cathedral towers.
