“Old city entrance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The Gros Cloche is the first main entrance to old Bordeaux, its also the entrance which led to the path to Compostelle. Its certainly been rebuilt over the centuries, but it is still awesome
At the top of RueSt James, a great walking street with several nice bars and restaurants. Very close to the center of where you want to be.

“Pretty, but a bit out of the way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I didn't think this attraction was particularly close to anything else, so if you have limited time in Bordeaux, I wouldn't go out of your way to see it. However, if you have some time and are up for a leisurely stroll, then the bell tower is well maintained and picturesque. It makes for a very nice picture.
