For about 400 years, St. Martin's Fair has been held on November 11 around the church bearing his name. Thousands of visitors from the entire region stroll through the long lines of booths, where shoppers can find dried fish, roast chestnuts, various sweets, as well as toys and clothing.
Once a visitor has entered the church yard, and after the children have amused themselves on the merry-go-round and the bumper cars, it is practically compulsory to enter the church and pay homage to the Saint by offering him a candle.
Originally the fair was strictly an agricultural event offering the farmers the chance to show their wares and trade livestock. Even today, Saturday's activities are dedicated to this purpose.
