This proud symbol of Mons' identity, affectionately known as "el catiau", was erected in the 17th century after the bell tower collapsed in 1661.

This 87-metre-high tower is the only Baroque belfry in Belgium and has a classic decor. The walls are made of Bray sandstone, while the embellishments, including the pillars and supporting pilasters, are of blue stone.


The belfry is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
