    Collioure, son clocher et ses façades catalanes

    Collioure

    Favorite thing: Blotti au fond d'une anse de la côte rocheuse, le village s'intègre harmonieusement au paysage; même ton sépia du célèbre clocher, du château, de la plage et des montagnes un peu brûlées par le soleil; petites maisons colorées de type méditerranéen.

    Cinema

    Favorite thing: Even the Cinema is situated in traditional rock buildings. This is on the edge of a maze of small streets and shops mostly artist studios these days.
    Ancient streets around the château were demolished to make way for more fortification.

    Imposing Fortress.

    by kiwi Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: More history. To the South end of the harbour and you can't miss the huge Château Royal. Dating back from the 12th Century it is now partly used by the French naval forces for frogman training. I wonder if this is where the frogman who blew up the Rainbow Warrior of my hometown, trained??? They even had rubber inflatables as well as sailing craft, and us Kiwis couldn't help but laugh when we saw these.

    Fortified Church.

    Once a light house...

    Favorite thing: History abounds in this town, and from various different eras.
    On the North end of the town harbour is the 17th century fortified church of the Notre-Dame-des-Anges. There is something contradictory about a "fortified church" but then we are reminded that differing religions have fought many times in history.
    The bell tower has been a light house many years ago. I love the clock face on the side of it now!!

    Favorite thing: Wonderful area in general. Very scenic. Loved the church Our Lady of the Angels with its ancient lighthouse & Chateau Royal. Toured the area south also.

    Don't miss the Nick!

    Favorite thing: Even a lovely place like Collioure needs a Police Station but it has to blend with its surroundings. The Police station is the blue shuttered building next to an art gallery.

    canals.

    Favorite thing: I guess these canals do fill with water during rainy times. They would not have been constructed for nothing. Meantime the seem to provide a place for young people to ride their scooters.
