Sacré-Cœur Basilica’s bell tower.

Sacré-Cœur Basilica’s bell tower contains one of the heaviest bells in the world, the 19-ton «Savoyarde» hanging in the belfry. Cast in Annecy in 1895 by the Paccard brothers, it was donated by the dioceses of Savoy, an allusion to the annexation of Savoy in 1860.
