When you walk on the rue Bordenave d?Abères on the bridge above the rue du Hédas, you may see these strange church towers.
It is the St Jacques church, located on Place de la Libération, near the law courts.
I could not find a serious explanation for why are the towers cut like that! Some say during the construction one of them had a failure and construction stopped and the second tower was made symmetrical; other say it is the result of an earthquake.
Well it is just funny and it is a good landmark in the city.
