Nice ride with views of the gardens and domestic dwellings, on the salins also. Everything is nice on the ramparts for a rare and completely preserved medieval city in terms of heritage.
Visite sympathique mais un peu chère (8e) pour faire le tour des remparts en lisant quelques panneaux explicatifs assez répétitifs. more »Visit friendly but a bit expensive (8th) to make the turn of the ramparts by reading a few fairly repetitive panels.
Il y a l’histoire, une balade impressionnante le long des remparts et une vue extraordinaire sur les alentours notamment les marais salants et leurs eaux rosées.

Plan to spend at least half a day to enjoy at all.
A must see. The oldest fully intact walled city in France. Very busy from May thru October. We were lucky enough to be there during the festival of the bulls during one of our visits. Great fun. Walk the ramparts if you can. Check the website for hours and days of being open.
Great historical site and very interesting one and a quarter mile walk around the tops of the walls and all the towers.....look for the stonemason marks as you go
Aigues-Mortes is truly a medieval gem of a walled city! This is a two day stay in order to truly drink in the atmosphere, sights and sounds of this charming and historic seaside fortified city. The walk along the top of the 7 metre high wall affords lovely views of both the enclosed town and the beautiful surrounding countryside and gives really a look back into the history of the city and of Middle-Ages France. To walk the entire length of the four walls will be 3 - 4 hours walking at a leisurely pace so be prepared with good comfortable sturdy shoes and if you go in summer, take water as it can get hot! We parked in the town site outside of the walked city and managed to find free parking to the north. This was one of the highlights of our meanderings through the south of France!
A very interesting guided tour. Lovely village
Great hostorucal site with this immense view to the sea. Totally recommended.
