The Charleville-Mézières town hall
To admire the Place Ducale and its ochre and brick pavilions with blue slate roofs from a different angle, simply climb the 150 steps of the belfry staircase of the Charleville-Mézières town hall. Built in the 1840s by the architect Louis-Clément Labarre, the belfry has a carillon with ten bells weighing between 70 and 496 lb (32 and 225 kg) which has set the pace for the life of the Carolos, the name given to the inhabitants since the merger of the two communes in 1966. From the watchman’s lodge, at the very top of the belfry, you can easily see the hill of Mount Olympus (196 metres) situated in a loop of the Meuse, not far from the Place Ducale.
