Collégiale Saint Martin, St-Rémy de Provence, France

Bright ceiling

I liked the brightly colored ceiling

Collégiale Saint Martin’s hulking Neoclassical mass is stuffed into tiny St-Rémy’s streets. The structure, which stands on the site of a medieval church, only dates from 1821, having been constructed after the original collapsed in 1818.

14th-century tower

Unique 14th-century tower

The 14th-century Gothic bell tower and chapel are from the original building.

Elaborate organ

I’ve seen a lot of organs, and I thought this one was particularly exquisite. It’s used every summer for the Festival Organa, a series of free organ concerts by some of the world’s best organists.
