The history of Saint Tropez goes back to Antiquity, the legend being that it got its name from the Roman officer Torpes, serving in the court of Nero. Torpes, who had converted to Christianity, was assassinated by order of Nero. After his corpse had been dumped in a row-boat, it is said that he floated to the shoreline where the town now stands. Discovered by painters and writers at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th, the town owed its initial fame due to the likes of painters Signac and Matisse and writers like Maupassant and Colette. Yet it was in the 1950s when the resort really hit the world stage thanks to being the location of the film “And God Created Woman” starring who would go on to become the most famous ambassador for Saint Tropez - Brigitte Bardot.
