What to do in Correns?
Correns is a typical Provençal village. You will enjoy walking through its streets with their historical charm. You will pass through Fort Gibron, which dominates the village. The village church has a particular history. Since the 11th century, a millennial celebration has been held in some years on May 3. This is the Feast of Forgiveness granted to fishermen. This celebration is very special because it takes place every 6, 5, 6 and 11 years (Grand Pardon). During the feast, thousands of Christians make pilgrimages to the church to beg the Lord's forgiveness. You will appreciate the beauty of the church choir. A relic of the cross of Christ is stored there.
