The church and the belle tower of Collioure are a landmark not only of Collioure but also for the department, the region,the country and in a number of countries. The luminosity of the area, the specifity of the church and the bell tower have inspired Matiise, Durain and a number of paints including contemporary ones.

In January, after obtaining all the proper authorization from the different level of government, the city of Collioure has launched rehabilitation work that will last four to five years. The scope of the project includes the interior and the exterior of the church and the bell tower. The eight lateral, some of them in a very degraded state are also part of the project.
The cost of this project is estimated at 4.5 millions €, 80 % of those costs being assumed by the different levels of governments.The remaining 20% has to be assumed by the Mairie de Collioure.
