FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This 13th century walled town has much to offer. Inside, history and modern life coexist. The church of Notre Dame des Sablons is the oldest building; it's where crusaders who left from here under Louis IX were blessed. Tour de Constance was a place where prisoners, mostly women, were held for years. There are also food shops, restaurants, and upscale boutiques with appeal for teens and adults.
  • Aigues-Mortes is a stop for those boating on the Canal du Rhone a Sete, so the marina and canal are lively and good for boat watching. Better yet, take one of the available boat tours.
  • If you have young children, stop for a bit in the main square, Place St-Louis, where they can run and play in your view and you can relax. If possible, visit Aigues-Mortes at night when the ancient walls are lit by moon and lights--it's magical.
