Photographer's Note

Close up on the bell tower of Collioure’s church. Old medieval headlight elevated in 1693 and decorated of a small pink cupola in 1894. Also used as a prison for a while, this tower is perhaps the most photographed piece of architecture in Côte Vermeille

The church itself is dedicated to the Virgin, the building was built between 1684 and 1691, the old church having been destroyed on order of Vauban. The ground of the church is on the sea level, and it is necessary to descend nine steps to penetrate in the nave. Some of the baroque furniture is remarkable, notably the works made on the high Altar, due to Josep Sunyer.
