Firmly anchored in tradition, the resort of Grau du Roi Port Camargue pays tribute every year to Saint-Pierre, the patron saint of fishermen.  The second largest fishing port on the Mediterranean coast of France, Grau du Roi lives and breathes fishing every day of the year and the atmosphere here is very particular for a holiday destination. During this festival visitors are invited to share special moments such as the procession of the statue of St Pierre along the quayside, where crowds at this religious ceremony remember sailors that are no longer with us.
