Dear to the peoples of the Mediterranean, Mary is the protective and consoling mother, and her devotion spreads throughout the Mediterranean basin thanks to the strong bond that unites her with sailors.

The Latin expression Stella Maris, meaning “Star of the Sea,” represents guidance for sailors through the immensity of the oceans.

For this reason, the fishing village of Cros-de-Cagnes celebrates Saint-Pierre, their protector.

The Fête de Stella Maris is an occasion to perpetuate the traditions of “May,” and it is “Stella Maris” that closes this period with a traditional festival that is both nautical, terrestrial, and popular.
