The distance of this fortified town is quite important, 90km from the port of Marseille, but the visit is really worth a long transfer. The salt smell welcomes tourists already many kilometers away from the town. You feel in the air and is the same for centuries, just like the city, it remained intact just as the king had wanted. Aigues-Mortes is formed by 5 vertical roads that intersect with other 5 horizontal, in a perfect symmetry. Where lived the salt workers and sailors, today there are craft shops, bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. Although very touristy, the Aigues-Mortes charm is undeniable.
