    He died on 26th May 1154, in the fortieth year of his episcopate.

    Saint Lambert is buried in Vence in the church that was his cathedral where his tomb is piously venerated as well as a reliquary containing his skull.

    The relic - the radius of his right forearm - can be seen in the church of Bauduen. (Diocèse Fréjus-Toulon)

    Saint Lambert is celebrated twice a year, on this occasion a sale of "poulettes" made by the ladies of the village is organised at the end of the service.
