  • Medieval immersion: city tour - Aigues-Mortes

The main attraction is the city ittself: Enjoy a medieval immersion and stroll in the old city. Spending one half day here is a good idea, it's pleasant for the eyes, hsitory, monuments and old military architecture.

As this city is well known for tourism, the infrastructure is aligned: restaurants, hotels and shopings are available

In 1240, Saint Louis decided to build a city close to his kingdom in order to have a direct access to the Mediterranean Sea. Seven centuries later, the fortification still dominates the Camargue as one of the most well preserved medieval French building.

On booking, guided visit for disabled person, individual and group all year long.
(?Label Tourisme et handicap?). Audio guide in French, English, German, Italian, and Dutch.
For schoolchildren and only on booking: Discovering route and pedagogic work.
