South Tower from Above

View of the Gothic south tower of Bourges Cathedral from the north tower. The south tower was completed by the end of the 13th century, but in 1313 great cracks began to appear, necessitating extensive buttressing. The structural problems are such that it has never been able to carry bells and is dubbed a "deaf tower."
