A beautiful port town in southeastern France, Citadelle de Saint-Tropez - Musee d'histoire maritime is a former military base, where the main source of income was fishing. This fishing village was liberated from the Second World War early in the twentieth century, following which it became an international resort by the sea. Artists from the French New Wave started rushing into this magnificent town as a result of its rich history and spectacular view. It later became a resort for the European and American jet set and a goal for tourists in search of a little Provençal authenticity and an occasional celebrity sighting.
