Tour Carrée Cathédrale de Dol Vue sur ville
France

Située 23 mètres au dessus du maitre-autel à la croisée du transept et de la nef, cette tour carrée se termine par un toit pyramidal couvert d’ardoises. Elle abrite une grande roue en bois, à multiples poignées de traction destinée au levage de l’ancien grand lustre. Du balcon on découvre la vieille ville et notamment au premier plan l’ancien collège technique qui accueille aujourd’hui un musée dédié aux bâtisseurs de cathédrales (Médiévalys). Au nord la vue se dégage sur le marais de Dol, avec au premier plan le Mont Dol qui culmine à 65 mètres et au loin la baie de Cancale et le Mont St Michel.

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
