La Ponche

La Ponche (downtown Saint Tropez) – Shrug off the hustle of the port in St-Tropez’s ramshackle fishing quarter, La Ponche, northeast of the Vieux Port. From the southern end of quai Frédéric Mistral, place Garrezio sprawls east from 10th-century Tour Suffren to place de l’Hôtel de Ville. From here, rue Guichard leads southeast to sweet-chiming Église de St-Tropez, a St-Trop landmark built in 1785 in Italian baroque style. Inside is the bust of St Torpes, honored during Les Bravades des Espagnols.
