Views from the top of st Martin de re are fantastic and well worth the climb on the rocketry wooded staircase. It is a steep climb but I followed children up and they managed no bother !!

Quaint, narrow wooden staircase to the bell tower, with a wonderful view of the bells and of the surrounding city. Sunset was beautiful from here.

2 euros to climb the tower and you can return for 1 euro if you want to. Great view from the top.Worth the climb. Be warned, if you are by the bell when it chimes it is very loud!!

Worth the climb up to the top. Great view of town. Church is lovely. Look at the clock mechanics. With the entry fee. Stairs are very narrow and watch your head if you are tall.

We got some great pictures whilst taking in the amazing view from the clock tower. One warning, avoid being in the bell tower when the bells are sounding - its deafening!!

Amazing experience, so lovely to see the whole of saint martin from up high. You have to go at sunset to get the full experience, it'a truly beautiful. A bit difficult for a 4 year old to climb up all those stairs but it's doable...More
