Understanding the tower and crypt of Bourges Cathedral
• A fragile tower. The north tower collapsed in 1506 due to the damage done by the settling of the foundations to the vaulting around its base. Repair work took thirty years. The new tower, known as the ‘Butter’ Tower, is so named due to the way it was financed: those who contributed money were dispensed from fasting.
