La Tour de l’Horloge in Dinan, a remarkable clock tower standing 46 meters tall from the 15th century, is celebrated for the breathtaking panoramic views it provides over Dinan. The construction of this architectural gem was commissioned by Duchess Anne of Brittany, which is commemorated in the naming of the tower’s main bell, among five, as Anne. The ground floor of the tower hosts a museum with exhibits dedicated to the clock’s mechanism and its operation, alongside an exhibition on Duchess Anne herself, offering visitors insight into the historical significance and the intricate workings of this time-honored tower.
