Collioure: A catalonian French seaside town

This is the Chapel of St Vincent in beautiful French seaside town Collioure in Southern France.  Located south of Perpignan and within the Languedoc Rossillion region, an area that produces the country’s most and some of the best wine.

Collioure is dubbed the City of artists because many have stopped here, including Picasso, to capture its beauty.  The town is also less than 10 kilometres from Barcelona and has a rich Catalan culture.
