‘Bravade des Espagnols’
On 15 June 1637, 21 Spanish galleys tried to invade the town. Despite their smaller numbers, the residents of Saint-Tropez managed to repel the enemy. It is in commemoration of this heroic act and to celebrate the courage of its inhabitants and soldiers that Saint-Tropez has remembered the ‘Bravade des Espagnols’ without fail for nearly four centuries.
