If you are there the Tuesday after Easter you will see the festivals honoring the martyred Pope St. Sixte II as the procession walks towards the chapel dedicated to this 3rd century saint accompanied by Camargue Guardians on white horses and men and women dressed in the costumes of 17th Century Arles.
They walk to the chapel of Saint Sixte and celebrate mass in the ancient language of Provencals. The site of the chapel once held a neolithic altar to the rain god and this spring ceremony is a continuation of that plea to the gods for favorable rains.
