Shrug off the hustle of the port in St-Tropez’s historic 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 a bust of St Torpes, honoured during Les Bravades in May.

Follow rue du Portail Neuf south to Chapelle de la Miséricorde , built in 1645 with a pretty bell tower and colourful tiled dome.
