En route through the Petite Camargue to discover the fortified town of Aigues Mortes, founded by Saint-Louis. The Tour de Constance offers a panoramic view of the ponds and salt marshes.

In 1240 Saint Louis decides to build a city at the gates of his kingdom in order to gain access to the Mediterranean.

It was to be here, in Aigues-Mortes, in a land of marshes, sand and water.

Seven centuries later, the fortifications still dominate the Camargue, offering one of the best preserved medieval architecture in France.
