Feast of Saint Claire

From Friday 11 August 2017 to Sunday 13 August 2017

Every year, the people of Saint-Paul celebrate one of their patron saints: Sainte Claire.

The party mood is palpable by evening time when the village dance starts on La Courtine. The climax is a magnificient firework display, with bonfires burning throughout the village.
