Architectural Building Castle
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).

  • Not so impressive as for example the walls of Dubrovnik, but still very nice. Stunning views on the town and on the salt mines. Explanations inside the towers. Don't miss it.  more »

  • 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.
  • A very well preserved walled town, spend a whole day at least walking the streets, the Tour de Constance and The Walls themselves. You will not be disappointed.
  • Impressive fortification for the city
  • Lined beautiful place of history, family! We took advantage of the free parking P8 (well indicated by signs) near a school to park the car and walk to feet in the alleys to the ramparts. In April, the site was not very crowded and pleasant to visit. The view of salins to the pink shades was extraordinary. The Church was cozy and very pretty multicolored stained glass. As we were traveling with a stroller we did not visit the walls so we are back when baby grows up.
