Festivities, in which the arrival of the body of Saint Torpes is also celebrated.  According to the legend, the name 'Saint-Tropez' comes off Saint Torpes, a martyr who refused to give up his faith. He was beheaded on the orders of Nero and his body was thrown into a boat. This boat, accompanied by a rooster and a dog, drifted towards the sea, in the bay that is now called Golfe de Saint-Tropez. They beached the boat on land. During the three days the “Bravadoors” bear the provincial traditional costumes.
