Understanding the towers and ramparts of Aigues-Mortes

• Royal features. Not only are the defensive systems excellent, there is also real attention to comfort and decoration.

• Doorway then prison of the kingdom. A canal links the town to the Mediterranean, and Saint Louis was the first French King to have a port on the south coast. He left on his crusades in 1248 and 1270 from here. Aigues-Mortes gradually silted up and the towers were turned into prisons. It was used to house Protestant prisoners after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685.

• Renewal. From 1875 the town started expanding again thanks to the planting of a vineyard away from the phylloxera and the new fashion for sea bathing.
