Fête Saint Pierre - the Dignitaries

Outside the Basilica, the Mayor of Menton, Jean-Claude Guibal poses with his wife, Senator Colette Giudicelli alongside the statue of Saint Pierre and surrounded by the fishermen and in the lower photo, the priest.

The Basilica is to the left of the photo - out of shot. At the top of the steps you see part of the beautiful Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs which was built between 1680 and 1687.


  1. Jilly, there is so much going on in that final photograph. It looks like the moment before the climax to a wonderful novel.

  2. Saint Pierre looks like he is really part of that group, albeit a taller part! :)

  3. This Fete St Pierre has been a GREAT collection of photos and postings!
    'a grace de St. Pierre!

  4. It looks like the tiniest member of the group was having the French version of a "hissy fit"! HA

  5. Yup. Somebody DID NOT want to be in the picture!
