TOUR SAINT-VINCENT - HISTORIC PROCESSION

TOUR SAINT-VINCENT - HISTORIC PROCESSION
© Tour St Vincent

Early in the morning, at around 6 am, a multitude of pilgrims accompany the relics of St. Vincent - founder of the town - on a peregrination whose layout has been traced back to 1262. Back in town, at around 11 am, the reliquaries are included in a historical and imposing procession. Eight hundred superbly costumed participants (of which seventy are on horseback) re-enact the life of the Saint and the homage paid to him through the centuries.


The Peregrination (12 km) sets off from the Collegiate Church of St. Vincent at around 6 am.

This event always takes place on Whitsun Monday.
