- City symbol
- Event in December
Located right next to Boramar beach, Notre Dame des Anges
is one of the main symbols of the city. Its bell tower was built on the basis of a lighthouse
which gives it a special charm and which makes it, today, one of the symbols of the city. This building has undergone several changes which marks its originality, it was first a lighthouse, then the bell tower was added and finally the dome in 1810. Its architectural style takes again the characteristics of southern Gothic.
In December, the city's bell tower is illuminated in the form of a mapping. Accompanied by a story from a tale, it plunges you into a magical atmosphere between the bell tower, the sea and the story.
Don't miss this unmissable event which takes place every Friday and Saturday in December.
A little history ...
Originally, the first church in the city, named Sainte-Marie, was located on the site of the primitive city. On the occasion of the remodeling of the city by the architect of Louis XIV, Vauban, the Notre-Dame-des-Anges church was built to compensate for the destruction of this first church. The first stone was laid in 1684 and was consecrated in 1691.
