Tour Saint-Jacques Reviews
Pour avoir une vue à 360° sur Paris après avoir monté en plusieurs étapes 300 marches. Seul le clocher gothique flamboyant reste, les pierres du Moyen-Age ayant servi à reconstruire d'autres monuments... more »To have a 360-degree view of Paris after climbing 300 steps in several stages. Only the flamboyant Gothic bell tower remains, the stones of the Middle Ages having been used to rebuild other monuments. Nicolas FLAMEL is the originator of the financing of this work to which it was added arcades In the 19th century, Theodore BALLU was the architect behind its renovation in the 19th century. Statue of Blaise PASCAL by Jules CAVELIER under the Tower. Last renovation between 2003 and 2013. Group limited to 17 people per hour because of the narrowness of the stairs, which is very nice to listen to the guide. To do absolely.
パリ市役所からリヴォリ通りをルーヴル美術館方向に歩いたところにあるひときわ高い塔で５２ｍあるそうです。 小さな公園の中にありました。 パスカルが、大気圧の実験をしたと言うことからパスカルの像があります。 この塔は、サンティアゴ・デ・コンポステーラ巡礼路の出発点としてユネスコ世界遺産に登録されているそうです。 この塔に上るツアーもあるようですが、１回に５人までなのでまだ上れてりないのが残念です。 more »It is 52 m in the high tower which is just a walk from The City Hall of Paris to the Louvre on The Rivoli Street. It was in a small park. There is an image of Pascal because it is said that Pascal experimented with atmospheric pressure. The tower is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a starting point for the Santiago de Compostela Pilgrimage Route. There seems to be a tour which goes up to this tower, too, but it is regrettable that it is not able to go up yet because it is up to five people at a time.
Disappointing. We wanted mainly to see the views from the top of the tower. The only way to get to the top of the tower is to take the guided tour, which costs 10 euros per person. We knew that the tour would be in French, and our French is poor, but we expected to have sufficient time at the top of the tower to compensate. In the event, the total time of the tour was 55 minutes, of which 15 minutes was spent getting up and down the steps, and 30 minutes of talking by the guide in various rooms on the way up. That left only 10 minutes to enjoy the views at the top. Not nearly long enough, and frustrating because the views are spectacular. Only recommended to people with good French and a strong interest in the history of the tower.
Stunning. Lots of steps. Tour was only in French when we went. Great views, cool history. A little off the tourist path. Amazing place, highly recommend.
