Championship of Provence of jousting

Martigues - Provençal Tradition - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free

As part of the Fête de la Mer et de la Saint-Pierre which will take place the day before: June 27, 2020, the city of Martigues is hosting the Provence championship this Sunday, June 28.
Come and encourage the jousters of the Jeune Lance Martégale!

Formerly the Targo, the Provencal jousting game, offers passers-by an unusual and unique spectacle in the heart of the city.
Practiced from May to September, the Provencal jousting is a fight on the water between two people each on a boat, at the top of a plateau called in Provençale (tintine) and the aim of the game is to send his opponent to the water by means of a lance.
Each jouster is protected by a wooden plastron and holds in the left hand a witness who must prevent him from catching the spear of his opponent.

No admission charge
