Dear Shaded Viewers,
The center of her veneration is Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, a place of pilgrimage for gypsies in the Camargue. Legend identifies her as the servant of one of the Three Marys, with whom she is said to have arrived in the Camargue. She has been known as a charitable woman that helped people by collecting alms, which led to the popular belief that she was a Gypsy. Subsequently she was adopted by Roma as their saint.
