The Festival of Saint Devota,

Saint Devota’s Day is a public holiday in the Principality of Monaco. The feast is dedicated to the patron saint of Monaco and the House of Grimaldi. It is celebrated annually on January 27.

The custom of celebrating Saint Devota’s Day was introduced by Prince Louse II of Monaco in 1924. On the evening of January 26, a fire is set to a fishing boat in memory of the story of Antinope. Antinope was the captain of a Florentine ship who tried to steal Devota’s relics. He was caught and arrested, and his ship was burnt. Another tradition is to release a white dove as a symbol of Devota’s spirit.
