Hello, SD34. Thank you for this visit and love this jack for sharing this photo. A Collioure Church of Angels. It was built between 1684 and 1691 in a southern gothic style, and its famous bell tower with virtually surrounded by sea on three sides. Initially, the tower is a medieval lighthouse, announcing the position of the port of Collioure smoke by day and by night the lights. At the end of the seventeenth century, the medieval church on the heights of Collioure was razed on the orders of Vauban. The consuls of Collioure still Vauban obtained permission to build a new church on the reefs that close the pass. This church is then pressed against the lighthouse. Meanwhile, Vauban does not want to harbor in Collioure, he prefers the deep water bay of Port-Vendres. Because, Collioure does not need a lighthouse. It then becomes the church tower. But it was only 100 years later, about 1809, a municipal decision is made to cover it with a cupola on the basis of a model originally from Tuscany.
Subject to several external and internal restoration, the church has seen its former sacristy rehabilitated to house the treasure. And are visible with period furniture, cloakroom Louis XIII, paintings of the fifteenth century, a reliquary of the sixteenth century, a Virgin of the seventeenth century.
