The ramparts of Aigues-Mortes are the 13th century fortifications of the town Aigues-Mortes
The imposing fortress of Saint-Louis, gateway to the Camargue. Saint Louis founded the fortified city of Aigues-Mortes to provide the kingdom of France with a port on the Mediterranean. The keep, ramparts and towers, gems of 13th-century Gothic architecture, are a remarkably well-preserved defence structure. Perched on the terrace of the Tower of Constance, you will observe a spectacular panorama overlooking the Camargue and salt marshes. Under the majestic ribbed vaults of the towers, you will dive into the Middle Ages with its Crusades and the major events that have marked the city.
