Information

Discover one of the most original gems in French industry! The PACCARD foundry is the world reference for church bells and chimes. Between tradition and modernity, 7 generations of foundrymen in succession have headed the company. In total, we have produced over 120,000 bells which ring out the hours, day in, day out, in towns and villages the world over.

Organised by the PACCARD museum, the tour of the company reserves many surprises for you: a guided tour of the workshops, singing and bell-ringing concerts, the opportunity to watch the weekly casting of the bells, and more.
