The people of Roquebrune used to carry out a pilgrimage walk to the top of the rock where they had erected three crosses. According to legend, three faults appeared in the rock when Christ died on the Cross. The three wooden crosses disappeared over time, and were replaced in 1991. Artist Bernar Venet created three steel crosses exceeding 4 metres in height and each weighing over a tonne. They pay tribute to three famous Crucifixion painters: Giotto, Grünewald and El Greco.
