Saintes Maries de la Mer
Pilgrimage along the Mediterranean Sea
Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, surrounded by lakes and a preserved nature site, is known for the pilgrimage of gipsies, which made the area so colourful. The bull and the horse reign here and various ‘manades’ (bull and horse breeding farms) welcome you outside the town. In the centre, the Norman church is worth a visit, just like Port Gardian, the fisherman harbour and marina of Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
