Eglise Sainte-Cécile

Historic site and monument, Religious heritage, Church, 19th C in Châteauneuf-les-Martigues

  • In 1844, the proposal to build a new church was adopted by the city council.
    Begun in 1846, the parish church of Sainte-Cécile was completed in 1853. The bell tower was completed in 1855.

  • In 1857, a violent storm destroyed it, reducing the area of the building. It was rebuilt in 1865, but it was not until 1868 that the church returned to its initial form as a palatine cross.
