*Links:

The French Wikipedia article about the abbey is extensive, but says nothing about the bells.  There are three photos of the exterior, and on the south facade one can see five swinging bells plus a clock bell.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Paccard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
