Procession des limaces
The literal translation would be the slug parade, but la Procession des limaces is a provençal tradition held on the second Sunday after the Pentacost and it dates back to nobody remembers exactly when. In Roquebrune Cap Martin the winding, medieval stone streets are decorated in snail shells filled with olive oil then set to burn with a candlewick. The effect is purely magical as neighbours lay out elaborate displays of flowers and flickering lights. A procession follows by torch light, winding through town to the church for an evening mass. While heading to town for the impressive site, consider stopping to admire the 1000 year olive tree on the Chemin de Menton.
