On July 15th, right after the celebration of the French national holiday in honor of the capture of the Bastille, Les Bravades is held in Saint-Tropez. It also recalls the events of long gone years. The celebration is dedicated to the year 1637 when the great victory was won over the Spanish flotilla which consisted of 22 ships, while the fleet of Saint-Tropez consisted of only 4 ships. Up until this point, the city was a small village, industrial fishing – but it was from this moment that everything changed, turning it into a strategically important tourist attraction. Important fortifications were built, and more people moved here. During the festival, the harbor of the city again becomes the most visited place, as impressive events are played out on the water surface repeating the battle of 1637.
