Paris Scope: New Bells for Notre Dame!

Jump to last reply

In Paris, Bells at Notre Dame Will Be Replaced ... - New York Times hours ago – The four major bells atop the northern towers of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame will be melted down and replaced by nine new ones. The plans ...

Interesting article today about most of the bells in Notre Dame cathedral being torn down and recast - seems the old bells did not sound good enough! The big bell Emanuel will remain in place however.

To me one of the unique things to do in Paris is to climb up inside the cathedral's roof and go eyeball to eyeball with the bells though I remember it as being a rather rickety climb!

Interesting too the Paris' biggest bells are in the Sacre Couer in Montmartre!
