The Belfries of Belgium and France are a world heritage site. The site comprises 56 belfries from Flanders and Wallonia in Belgium, and from far northern France.

Understand[edit]

These belfries were built during the Middle Ages in the Duchy of Burgundy. Most of them are part of churches, city halls or other buildings but some are standalone buildings.
