206. Town hall and town hall tower in Bavay.

Bavay is a town eight kilometers far away from here with many ruins from the time of Rom. Here is the town hall which was built a little later. The house on the left is from the Renaissance. the town tower is one of the three beautiful town-towers of the Avesnois. There are
- the town tower of Pont-sur-Sambre, which you know already good (photos 1, 2, 3 , 4, 5).
- the town tower of Le Quesnoy which you can see on this photo.
- and the town tower of Bavay which you see here.
In the North of France and in the Picardy, so well like in Belgium, you can see many town towers. About fifty of them in France and in Belgium are in the UNESCO world heritage, but not the three of the Avesnois which are the from the UNESCO forgotten town towers although they are between the eldest of all these of the North of France.
