Aigues Mortes: Medieval Ramparts Entry Ticket

2. Aigues Mortes: Medieval Ramparts Entry Ticket

Step back in time and discover the thrilling world of medieval France at the Aigues Mortes Ramparts. With their use dating back to 1278, the ramparts stand as a historical record of architectural strategies used in medieval warfare, as well as the centuries-long struggle between Catholics and Protestants. Built to protect the Mediterranean port of Aigues Mortes, the fortifications comprise 20 towers and nearly a mile of stone wall. Amble past the multiple entrances to the wall, including the Gardette Door, and gaze up at the Tower of Constance, one of the most well-preserved examples of medieval towers — used in the 19th century as a prison for Protestant dissidents. Keep your eyes peeled for traces of the projectiles fired at the ramparts during the many conflicts that occurred along the walls, each a priceless account of over 700 years of French military history.

We had a great time, Freddy is a great guide, the tasting break was also very interesting, I absolutely recommend to do if you come to the area

Very informative and very well organized. Our guide was of a very good level and was very invested. His name was Michel I believe.

Good experience even if you can't get close to the animals. The tasting of charcuterie and fougasse with wine is very nice
