The origin of Aigues-Mortes is lost in the mists of time. The men used to collect salt, to tame the wild vagaries of a malarial climate long before the plans and actions of Louis IX came to glorify the thirteenth century, the history of these places. Therefore, Aigues-Mortes, hard mass encamped in the vastness will continue to evolve, crossing inexorably wars, conflicts, times of peace and poverty. Its towers and ramparts are marked with the imprint of time, haunted by the mystery of their resistance.

Today, Aigues-Mortes, retains its bullfighting traditions. The Mecca of the Camargue gastronomy, she turns to the Mediterranean and combines the secret charm of the past in the future.
