Fodor's Expert Review Tour et Remparts d'Aigues Mortes

Aigues-Mortes Castle/Palace/Chateau

The walls and towers of this Gothic fortress, once a state-of-the-art marvel, are astonishingly well preserved. The stout ramparts now contain the tourist-filled village of Aigues-Mortes, but the visit is more than justified by the impressive scale of the original structure, and the vistas of the surrounding Camargue are stunning. Temporary exhibitions along the ramparts are held in summer, as well as a permanent exhibition on history of Protestantism in the region.
