In partnership with the Foundation for the Safeguarding of French Art, BFM Regions, RCF and actu.fr, Pilgrim launched, on March 6, 2023, the contest “I love my bell tower” sponsored by Stéphan Bern. Each participant was invited to write a personal letter, which tells of their emotional connection with the church or the chapel of their choice. Meeting last April, the jury examined all the letters received, accompanied by their photos, and selected twelve regional winners for the final phase of the competition.
We then called on you to choose your favorite letter and thus promote your church tower, your town or your region. We are happy to announce that it is theChurch of the Transfiguration of Saint-Sauveur in Cerbère (Pyrénées-Orientales) who was your favorite! Discover the letter, accompanied by the photo of the bell tower (letter and photo below).
