A defense Tower until the 17th century, then later a church in 1810.
Formerly a simple lighthouse (which indicated the presence of the port), it will become a defense tower in the 13th century. It was only from 1810 that this defense tower became a bell tower for the Vauban church which is attached to it. The dome of the church will be placed in 1810, then taking the form that all tourists and inhabitants love.
Quatre ans de chantier sont prévus pour ce monument emblématique de Collioure.
