Aigues-MortesFrance

Aigues-Mortes, former strategic port of the Camargue and the Mediterranean, has a rich history and natural heritage that's not to be missed.

Built almost two millennia ago and fortified with ramparts by Saint Louis in the 13th century, Aigues-Mortes is a town of history. Some of its buildings are listed historic buildings. But the town, a popular tourist destination, also boasts an impressive natural and cultural heritage.

Of the treasures of Aigues-Mortes, the most obvious are the ramparts. These are a perfectly preserved Gothic-inspired military construction, surrounding the impressive Tower of Constance. With a diameter of 22 metres and standing almost 40 metres tall, it was once home to the king's garrison. Next, head for the Plan des Théâtres, the historic Camargue bullfighting arenas. You can then explore the town centre aboard the Petit Train d’Aigues-Mortes or on foot, setting off from the famous place Saint-Louis. The town also boasts some remarkable religious buildings, such as Notre-Dame-des-Sablons Church, the Chapel of the Gray Penitents and the Chapel of the White Penitents.

Aigues-Mortes occupies a unique geographical position, meaning it has an incredible natural environment; as a Camargue town, it was built on ancient marshland. Discover local wildlife and plant life at the Maison Grand Site de France de la Camargue Gardoise and its interactive nature trail. The Aigues-Mortes Salt March and its Salt Museum are also worth a visit for a unique experience combining salt and the sea. Boat trips and horse riding are also on offer, so you can admire the paddy fields, bulls, wild horses and pink flamingoes. Finally, don't leave without trying the famous fougasse, washed down with a glass of Sable wine.

Aigues-Mortes has a train station with links to major local towns, such as Montpellier, Nîmes, Marseilles, Arles and Avignon. The town is also around 25 minutes from Montpellier Méditerranée airport and 40 minutes from Nîmes airport. By road, Montpellier, Nîmes and Lyon are all a short journey away via the A9 motorway.

A Night As Castle Prince .

"The hotel was set in the most picturesque location. You enter the city walls, which stand a full 40foot, and turn a short right across cobbles stones. A brief 100yard walk and you are met with the outside terrace of the hotel, umbrellas, both high and low tables and the first of man a welcoming smile. ..."…"
