Description

The Camargue region of southern Provence

is known for its desolation, white horses, black bulls and swampy plains.Less known is its history of Crusaders at Aigues-Mortes, the ancient city with spectacular 13th century military architecture;its salt traders and Crusader saddle makers.

Today this southern Rhône river delta is one of Europe’s largest ecological reserves, fostering a unique environmental balance.Every year it sees a migration of pink flamingos, the harvest of an introduced rice development and large scale industrial production of salt.

The Gypsies of France have made Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer a holy centre for their annual religious celebrations whilst a dramatic demonstration of medieval falconry embodies the spirit, the pomp and pageantry of castles, knights and kings.
