A special event in the Var this year will be "Cotignac 500" that marks 500 years since since the first apparition that set Cotignac on the map in the 16th century as a Christian pilgrimage site . What is unique about Cotignac is the focus on the family and children, that no doubt from the apparition itself, where the infant Jesus appeared in the arms of the St Mary.
