943 BE/FR - Belfries of Belgium and France (1999)

Brief Description

"Twenty-three belfries in the north of France and the belfry of Gembloux in Belgium were inscribed as a group, an extension to the 32 Belgian belfries inscribed in 1999 as Belfries of Flanders and Wallonia. Built between the 11th and 17th centuries, they showcase the Roman, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles of architecture. They are highly significant tokens of the winning of civil liberties. While Italian, German and English towns mainly opted to build town halls, in part of north-western Europe, greater emphasis was placed on building belfries. Compared with the keep (symbol of the seigneurs) and the bell-tower (symbol of the Church), the belfry, the third tower in the urban landscape, symbolizes the power of the aldermen. Over the centuries, they came to represent the influence and wealth of the towns."

比利时和法国钟楼
"这些钟楼建于11至17世纪,其中23座位于法国北 部,32座位于比利时,它们共同展现了罗马、哥特式、文艺复兴和巴洛克式的建筑风格。钟楼在建立之初是公社通过宪章获得独立的标志,象征着自由。钟楼是城 市景观中的第三种塔,可与要塞(封建领主,即封建地主的标志)和钟塔(教堂的标志)媲美,象征着贵族的权力。几个世纪以来,它们已逐渐成为城镇影响力和财 富的象征。"
