An eagerly awaited cultural celebration taking place at the tail-end of summer, the Journées du Patrimoine (Heritage Days) are now over a quarter of a century old and continue to grow in popularity. Although Saint-Tropez is most often associated with glamour and celebrity, Heritage Days give the resort the opportunity to demonstrate its cultural, artistic and historical side.
Now extended throughout all of Europe, Heritage Days will take place on the weekend of September 15th and 16th. In Saint-Tropez, famous places and several that are relatively little-known will open their doors to the public. History buffs will want to visit the citadel and its dungeons, which are home to a museum dedicated to maritime history, and then take a trip to the Temple Protestant, where you can see an exhibition celebrating 500 years of the Reformation. Literature buffs shouldn’t miss the opening of the former home of the writer Colette, the famous Treille Nutmeg.
Heritage Days are an invitation to discover a discover a different facet of the celebrated coastal resort. From the Museum of the Gendarmerie to Cinéma à La Tartane on the rocky jetty known as the Môle Jean-Réveille, and from the fascinating architecture of the Latitude 43 apartment building to a guided tour of the old town, Saint Tropez Heritage Days are a journey that will lead you to exceptional places and show you the history, culture and heritage at the heart of Saint-Tropez.
