Blessing of the vintage cars

Saturday 8 June

Col de la Vayède and Esplanade du Château

The Écurie 1900 has put this blessing back into effect for the last twenty years.

In 1426, the will of Princess Alix des Baux mentions an alabaster statue of Saint Christopher in the castle chapel.

Five centuries later, the Association de Saint-Christophe has organised a blessing of the cars every year since the 1930s.

Écurie 1900 has been holding this blessing for the past 20 years.
