Jousting games

Visible and noisy during the days of competition between municipalities, nautical jousting claims our attention and admiration.

Perched on platforms, jousters (men or women) compete as during the late 19th century. The spectacular "fighting" is short but violent. This greatly resembles the jousting of the knights of the middle ages. Once you have witnessed these jousting games you will never forget them. If you haven’t seen them you are invited during summer on Sundays starting mid-June to stroll along our quays and stop a few minutes to attend a training session or competition. Definitely worth a visit!
