Tours et remparts d'Aigues-Mortes

13th century remarkable fortified site.

The fortified city of Aigues-Mortes was built in the 13th century on the order of Saint Louis to provide the kingdom of France with a port on the Mediterranean. The complex consists of 1,634 metres of ramparts flanked by twenty towers and one of the most splendid keeps in the architectural style of the Middle Ages, the tower of Constance, which was used as a prison for Protestants from the Cévennes region from 1685.

New! A new interpretation space at the beginning of the tour showing how the town was created by Saint Louis, the port system and the development of the Cité up to the present day.

Site with the “Quality tourism” label and the “Quality Occitanie Sud de France” label.
