Antitank walls at Collioure, Port Vendres….

 

Collioure anti tank walls

 

During WW2, the Germans constructed concrete antitank walls to prevent the landing of allied troops on the beaches.

Walls were built at Collioure on the Faubourg beach, at the Bay of Paulilles, on the Benardi, Factory and Fourat beach, and at Banyuls on the Elmes beach. Most beaches at Port Vendres were unsuitable for landing motorised vehicles but anti tank walls were built on the Tamarins beach.
