*Links:

The French Wikipedia article about the building has numerous photos, and a detailed section about the bells (though the counts and lists do not match).  There is a very large gallery of photos of the architecture, windows and art, but only one photo of a bell.

Since there is no predominant maker, this work is not indexed by foundry.  However, the two great bells are separately indexed; see below.
