Did you know that it was originally an Egyptian colony? Saint Sarah, the Patron Saint of the gypsies, is not she also called Sarah the Egyptian? What if Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer was the real gateway to Christianity in Western Europe from the arrival of the “Saintes Maries” (Mary-Magdelene, Mary-Salome, Mary-Jacobe) who gave their name to the city?
