Since 1 December 1999, the belfry of the town hall in Lo is included in the list of UNESCO's world heritage.
Most belfry towers house a carillon . Belfort and chimes are inextricably linked. The building served as a depository for valuables and the privileges of the city and the tower the town clock (s) were hanged .
In the city accounts Lo (1411 and 1412), the oldest listed 'huereclocke' is already mentioned. In 1449, a dial was placed, which designates the hours.
In 1525 the tower was a small carillon bells attached to 4 , which were hit every half hour. In 1527 the carillon was completed with 7 bells.

After 1753 there are no records to be found on the carillon back. Very probably were the bells , like many Flemish bells , during the French occupation claimed to remove to make French coins from the tin bronze

In early 2006 , a working group was set up to see if it would be possible to re- install in the belfry Carillon.
