“Many Romani from across Europe made pilgrimage to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer in Camargue, France on 24th May to honour Sara e Kali, the Romani patron saint.
Sara’s statue is taken from the church crypt and processioned to the shore of the Mediterranean in a reenactment of her arrival in France with the ‘Maries’, the mothers of the Apostles. The town plays host to music, dancing, feasting and ritual bathing as Roma celebrate their patroness’ day.”
Marie Antoinette’s exquisite Petit Theatre built by her master architect Richard Mique. It is almost hidden behind the formal French Gardens of the Petit Trianon between the Chateau and the Pavilion Français both built by Ange-Jacque Gabriel under Louis XV.
