Collegiate church of Provencal Gothic architecture housing the relics of Saint Valentine.


The collegiate church of Roquemaure is a testimony to the know-how of the builders of the Middle Ages and a testimony to their great spirituality. Wanted by Cardinal Bertrand de Pouget, nephew of Jean XX (second pope of Avignon) it was started in 1329 and finished in 1335.

At the beginning of the 14th century, Romanesque architecture (inspired by the Romans) in the South of France was influenced by the Gothic style from the North.
This new style was not immediately accepted, so that we have a mixture of the two architectures that historians have defined as: southern Gothic.

On the other hand, great importance is given to numerical symbols.
Today we often ignore its meaning and our church has undergone such transformations that the meaning of the symbols wanted by their builders does not appear at first sight.

Since 1868, the collegiate church has housed the relics of Saint Valentine, patron saint of lovers, as well as a beautiful organ dating from the 17th century, listed in the register of historic monuments since 1969.

Visit of the village:vestiges of the old port, keep, facade of the Town Hall, the Cardinal's house, the house of Placide Cappeau, composer of the famous "Christian Midnight", chapel.
