- Architectural heritage
This belfry, part of Charleroi's City Hall, was designed by architect Joseph André in 1936. A perfect combination of classicism and art deco in architecture, it was built of blue and white stone as well as bricks. 70 metres high, the tower was then crowned with a small bronze bell tower. The last 3 levels are home to its carillon: 47 bells playing the tune of a popular song by Jacques Bertrand, a local bard.
Don't miss it - it is listed by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage.
