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).

  • Visited during the European heritage days, the walls and the Tower of constance are an obliged passage for who wants to discover the history of the region and its environment. St louis to marie durand, from the Crusades to the Protestant resistance fighters, it is a place to discover or rediscover, alone or with family. I never was back for 20 years, and rediscovered many things I had forgotten. Next time, I would do my time and would think to take water!
