The brief English Wikipedia article on this building has a photo and a panorama of it.
The longer French Wikipedia article has those photos and more, including one of the southeast tower.  It is unclear which tower holds these bells.

The church Website does not mention these bells, but there are some in the southeast tower, the oldest dating from 1527.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of miscellaneous bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
