Collioure Beach
Languedoc-Roussillon

Collioure used to be divided into two villages separated by the river Douy, the old town to the south named Port d'Avall (today known as Le Faubourg) and the upstream port, Port d'Amunt (the present La Ville). Collioure was taken in 1642 by the French troops of Maréchal de la Meilleraye. A decade later, the town was officially surrendered to France by the 1659 Treaty of Pyrenees
