The interior of Église Notre-Dame-des-Anges

Église Notre Dame des Anges

A classified Monument Historique that looks out over the Ansa de la Baleta bay of Collioure.

In Collioure's Ansa de la Baleta bay the Église Notre Dame des Anges is clearly seen. With its incorporated medieval lighthouse, the church interior features wooden altarpieces in Catalan Baroque style.

Its dominate position in the harbour drew many famous artists including Matisse, Georges Braque, and André Derain who put the views they saw onto canvas.

Église Notre Dame des Anges, a classified Monument Historique with its incorporated medieval lighthouse taken out-of-service when the two towns Port d’Aval and Port d’Amont combined into Collioure. Today its working clock tower looks out over the Ansa de la Baleta bay of Collioure.

The church's interior is old and beautifully decorated.

The 2012 vintage red wine titled Notre Dame des Anges a 'powerful, full-bodied wine with a superb tannin structure which combines beautifully with aromas of spice and ripe fruit' took its name from the Collioure's bell tower.
