Trip Report Aigues Mortes in the Camargue

Jump to last reply

A lot of people drive along the Mediterranean coast of France between Languedoc and the Côte d'Azur (or vice versa) but a surprising number of them miss the quite exceptional town of Aigues Mortes, not far from Arles. It is yet another of France's walled cities, which is not exceptional in itself, but it was the first port created by France on the Mediterranean under Louis IX (Saint Louis, to you people from Missouri). The reason it was forgotten was that a few decades later, Marseille became part of France and Aigues Mortes was forgotten.

However, it is totally charming and is absolutely worth a visit. I was there just a week ago and made this report: http://tinyurl.com/aigues
