Tour Pey Berland - Review
As any good sacred destination lover will know, church towers aren’t supposed to stand separately from their churches (in this case the St. Andre’s Cathedral). This one does, because it’s also a belfry, and with such awesomely strong bells that it was thought that the church wouldn’t be able to withstand them ringing. 50 metre high and flamboyantly Gothic, it also hoists a statue of Eleanor, Our lady of Aquitaine. Climb up the 231 steps for a stunning view of the city. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bordeaux itinerary 1 day.

Tour Pey Berland, Bordeaux Reviews
You go up a seemingly infinite tight staircase, passing by some locked doors with occasional peek at some bells, to arrive at a first platform with interesting history about all the monuments you can see in a 360° range. The second platform is a few meters above. Both give a very nice and unique view of the city !
220 steps (I think) so quite out of breath! Worthwhile to see a good view of the city, but there was an extremely long wait (with just two of us we had to wait over half an hour) because it's a one in one out policy - so it's a long wait for a short time of actually walking up the tower!
Free if European and 18-25 years. If not, 5 or 6 euro. Great view! Worth the 232 steps. Staircase is safe, but quite narrow. Being fat or having a big rugsack might be a problem if you counter people going up or down the stairs. Because of limited space, only 19 people at a time are allowed in the tower. A short queue might take up to 20-30 minutes waiting time.
Lovely view. Nice climb. Mind you head at the door
Important stuff: Free under 25, 6€ otherwise. 233 steps, 1 staircase, no elevator, so max. capacity is 19. Backpacks to be left at reception. 2 clear 360° views of entire city. In detail: If you're under 25 it's free so I would definitely recommend. Otherwise it's 6€ which is not too bad for the experience, although it's only the two 360° views and nothing else so you may not feel that it's not worth it depending on your interests. Personally it was one of the best experiences I've had in Bordeaux so I'd probably recommend it anyway if you can brave the climb.
