The 27th of January is a day when the population of Monaco celebrates the annual Feast of Sainte Devote. The celebration is dedicated to the patron saint of Monaco, who was a young virgin, imprisoned and killed in 4th century
Corsica
. The people of Monaco take this day very seriously, as they celebrate it magnificently. In particular, they gather at the Saint Devote Chapel and burn a boat there. This act illustrates the legend of Sainte Devote. The prince and princess of Monaco usually take part in this religious ceremony with a torchlight procession.
