The Tower of Douaumont


And for this Tuesday, a view of the tower of the Ossuary of Douaumont (Verdun). This tower is 46 meters high and has a panoramic view of the battlefields. It contains a bronze death-bell, weighing over 2 tons, called Bourdon de la Victoire, which is sounded at official ceremonies.
