Well-preserved medieval city walls, including Tours et Remparts d'Aigues-Mortes, surround this small French town. The Tower of Constance is one of the most famous examples of 13th-century Western European military architecture in the marshlands. It was designed to provide warning signals in case of invading fleets and to offer a spiritual headquarters for clergy. Look for the ground-floor guardroom with protective portcullis, a cellar with a pantry and ammunition storage, and dungeons. The structure also includes the Knight's Hall. Take in the views of the region from the terrace. The ramparts stretch for a distance of 1,650 m (138 ft).

    I know, it's normal, it's a tourist place where all the shops of souvenirs rather unrelated. Restaurants with lined up but prices without really of imagination. I wish a place containing a part of the atmosphere of yesteryear. Also, I wanted to take a picture with the walls and water nearby. We drove, saw flamingos in the distance but never a site to admire the nature and this famous view I could see in the books. Everything is private, forbidden to the curious but open to tourists for a price around urban trains and boats that take you the where we want to take you. Yes, disappointed because I thought I contemplate this sensational architecture freely and with more authenticity.

    Aigues-Mortes is a fortified town to discover! This is very typical. Pity that the visit of the ramparts is paid

    Great history and walk along the ramparts. Take enough time to read and listen to the exhibits along the way.

    The tour of the Remparts is fantastic to get a real idea of the village. It is a real village with the typical French houses more than a place full of tourism shops. With the visit you can go around the rampart and visit all the towers.

    Aigues-Mortes is a hidden gem on the southern coast of France. Very charming little town and the city walls are fascinatingly preserved.
