A short story of Sainte-Maxime
Sainte-Maxime comes from the name of one of his female monk who died in 750.
She’s still been celebrated each month of May, at the occasion of a “Votive”
event. The participants wear blue and white clothing for the event.
But Sainte-Maxime as a city was created on February 15, 1790. Two seigniories
were then unified: the Northern Revest seigniorial and the Southern seigniorial
of the Bastides of Sainte-Maxime and Saint-Pierre de Miramas.
Anecdotal may be, there was then only a house between the nowadays Square Tower
( “Tour Carrée” which was originally the Abbey’s of Lérins Tower – from the
city of Cannes) and the original church.
1520: the first floor of the Square Tower was built;
1560: the second floor was built;
1566: the Priory decided to divide the land into emphyteotic plots.
Hundred plots were then awarded to those who committed themselves to plough their plot. It led to the agricultural, pastoral and forestry vocation of Sainte-Maxime, as well as its small harbour.
At the beginning of the 19th century, the hundreds of inhabitants lived on forestry working, vineyards and olive groves. Growing cereals, ovine breeding,
hunting and fishing were other economic activities of the city. Fishing contributed to further develop the small harbour of Sainte-Maxime which
activities included wood, wine and minerals transportation.
Things have evolved from then !
