    The Collegiate Church of Saint Martin, No. 11 on the map Walking along in the shadow of the bell tower behind the church, you pass Jean de Renaud Chapel, one of Provence’s few buildings in the flamboyant Gothic style. Along with the 14th century bell tower, it’s all that remains of the Medieval church, which collapsed in 1818. The church was rebuilt under the Restoration in 1821 by an architect named Penchaud, who also designed the Porte d’Aix in Marseille. Go round to the front of the church to admire its monumental façade, modelled on a Greek temple. This grand composition aimed to symbolise the restored power of both Church and Monarchy, but the aesthetic of the whole is an incongruous combination of a Gothic steeple with a Neoclassical body whose proportions were based on St. Peter’s Basilica. The Collegiate Church of Saint Martin’s pipe organ, restored by organ builder Pascal Quoirin in 1983, is considered one of the masterpieces of contemporary instrument making. This is where the greatest organists come from around the world between July and September every year to join resident organist and international performer Jean-Pierre Lecaudey for the annual Organa Festival.
