SPRING TRAVEL DIARY PART II | EXPLORE AIGUES-MORTES IN CAMARGUE
I always loved Camargue because of its gypsy culture, wild landscapes, white horses, bulls and flamingos in ponds! For this second article of my spring travel diary in France, I wanted to bring you to the very special city of Aigues-Mortes, located in the heart of Camargue. Not far from Arles, Aigues-Mortes was built in the 13th century on the order of Saint Louis to provide the kingdom of France with a port on the Mediterranean.
Lovers of history and castles, this town is one of the most unique in France. The well preserved original city walls still stand today and the vibrant city is worth to go explore. Built upon the coastal marshlands of the Petite Camargue, Aigues-Mortes is an excellent base from which to discover this fascinating region.
