The ruins of St. Pons church in Collobrières
Collobrières, a provincial village nestled in the curve of the Réal Collobrier - known for its plane trees, fountains, flowered terraces and steep narrow streets - possesses a rich and diversified architectural and archeological heritage in the heart of the Maures Massif.
Built on a rocky promontory overlooking the village, the St. Pons church was erected beginning in the 16th century. A new church was constructed in the village in the late 1800’s and replaced St. Pons as the parish place of worship. St. Pons has been in ruins since the early 20th century. It was declared a historical monument in 1975. Since 2002, the municipality has undertaken work to clean, stabilize and consolidate the edifice, under the direction of the Architect of the Bâtiments de France. The town has recently acquired the land and ruins surrounding St. Pons in view of creating a convivial landscaped ensemble.
