St. Tropez is included among the most popular cosmopolitan resorts worldwide and, because of its fame, tourists have shown interest to explore the entire Côte d' Azur.
Visitors who crowd the lovely beaches in the wider area of St. Tropez would be surprised to know that it was originally a small and very quiet fishing village. The only people who showed interest to visit back then were artists, mostly writers and painters.
For those interested in the town’s history, it was named after Saint Torpes, who was a Christian martyr that was killed by Emperor Nero. Every year on May his memory is honored in the form of a "bravade" that includes an effigy along with a musket fire carried all over town.
In mid-June residents of St. Tropez dress in 18th century Provençal costumes to participate in another "bravade" that takes place. Additionally, at the beginning of October a yacht race (“Nioulargue”) is held and numerous good yachts participate.
