As a mythical village and port in the Mediterranean, Saint-Tropez has been, since the end of the 19th century, a land of inspiration for artists. Its natural assets first earned it the favor of painters, with Signac, but also Matisse, Marquet, Camoin and many others… Then writers like Maupassant, Colette or Boris Vian celebrated it before the cinema incense and make it known throughout the world in particular through the talent of Roger Vadim and Brigitte Bardot.
Today, and far beyond the popular attraction of the city of Bailli de Suffren, Art and Culture are constantly expressed in Saint-Tropez with the remarkable Exhibitions of the Musée de l'Annonciade and the summer music and dance festivals… The Signac network, being created within Impressionisms Routes and placed under the management of the city of Asnières-sur-Seine, will fully benefit from the major asset of the active participation of one of the world's tourism capitals.
