Saint-Jacques Tower, Paris

3 votos
This 52-m Flamboyant Gothic tower is all that remains of the former church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie ("Saint James of the butchery").
The tower's rich decoration reflects the wealth of its patrons, the wholesale butchers of the nearby Les Halles market. The masons in charge were Jean de Felin, Julien Ménart and Jean de Revier. It was built in 1509 to 1523, during the reign of King Francis I. With a dedication to Saint James the Great, the ancient church and its landmark tower welcomed pilgrims setting out on the road that led to Tours and headed for the way of St James, which led to the major pilgrimage destination of Sant'Iago de Compostela.
