Cultural Heritage - Bandol

Saint François de Sales Parish Church

The church was built between 1747 and 1748.
In its architectural form, it was listed as an historical monument on August, 23 1990.

On March, 25 1746, the community of Bandol took the initiative of building, at its own expense, a chapel in the commune.

Works began in 1746 and ended in 1748 because of a lack of money.
Joseph Suquet, a young builder, was in charge of the works.
The main part of the church was completed. It includes a building measuring 34 meters long, 9 meters wide and 12 meters high, the dome reached 16 meters high.

The church, after having been blessed on October, 18 1748 by his Grace Henri de Belsunce, was erected under the name and title of Saint - François de Sales by ordinance of June, 5 1751.
The central nave soon became too small for the church activities.

Spurred on by two fraternities, two side chapels were added.
On December, 27 1751, the Saint - Elme Fraternity of Fishermen obtained the authorization to build a chapel next to the central nave and to open an arch to link them.

In May 1772, the priest Garden wanted to build another chapel for the Saint - Vincent de Paul fraternity for wine-growers and coopers.
Joseph Suquet began the construction in 1782 and completed it in 1783.
