Photos of Aigues Mortes

The ancient fortified town of Aigues Mortes, is a lively and worthwhile destination in the south of France, located on the coast in the department of the Hérault and the Languedoc-Roussillon region and the Petit Camargue. A once important port for the crusades, the massive walls with 6 towers and 10 doors, surround the town protecting the citizens from the sea and invasions. From afar you can see the Tower of Constance which is the tallest building within the walls.
