This restored walled hamlet is similar to Carcassone and well worth a visit. The square in the middle is a great spot for lunch. There are craft shops and other unique shops. You can walk up the ramparts and stroll around the streets.

A well organised set of historical displays, occasionally in two languages (unusual to get anything but French in many places) - and some great views from the towers for pictures. We are staying in Aigues Mortes for a few days so it was great to get a sense of what created this amazing place on the marshes.

The city of Aigues Mortes is really special. The intact walls and towers are magnificant. Be sure to wander through the town, but prepare for a "disneyland" experience. See and enjoy the town and move on!

Nice view of the city and the surroundings of the city. Rather long walk for the kids (3 years) and not possible to bring the buggy because of the stairs. The tower has an excellent view.

Choose to do this early morning when it is cooler and you get a much nicer experience. The views over the canals and off into the distance are amazing. You can see the salt pans and right across to the coastal areas, across as far as Le Grande Motte. Unfortunately the exhibition areas and commentaries are all in French, but... More

A delightful opportunity to take a (rather long!) walk around the complete walls of a mediaeval town

Beautiful Constance Tower dated 1248 and almost intact Medieval fortifications consisting 1,640 meters of city walls. Must see!

This is a charming medeival fortress with lots of restaurants and shops. The medieval aspect of it is very nice. We enjoyed the visit and lunch. There was a medieval competition and this was outstanding even though we had to pay to see it all.

Good views of the town & surrounding areas & information presented in French & English.. Watch out for the fences next to handrails, I snagged my arm on a stray wire!
