This is like stepping back in time. Inside the Ramparts is totally present day even some cars and fabulous dining and icecream. It is like this little time capsule with a present day city inside. Right next to the Carmargue Salt tour as well.

My introduction refers to the stunningly good state of repair of the walls and remparts, perhaps because they were never attacked. There has supposedly been no major refurbishment either, but this seems highly unlikely to me, given that it is relatively local stone ( Beaucaire...More

Use the head sets to learn about the various uses of the towers and ramparts over the centuries. Great photo ops from walls or climb to the top of the tower. The day we visited the elevator was out of order. 8 euros seemed a...More
