From 16-18 May, the glitzy city of Saint Tropez celebrates its military history and its patron saint Tropes (after whom the city is named). The origins of the event are thought to date back to 1554 when the Saint Tropez Chapel was completed in honour of Tropez whose body is said to have arrived here in AD68. In a tradition that still survives today, the people of Saint Tropez honour this date with the three-day celebration during which participants don old French military uniforms and traditional clothing.France, Provence, Cote d'Azur.
