The Aigues Mortes / Port Du Roy area
Aigues Mortes was built in the 13 century by King Louis and
prospered as a coastal trading port for many years. One of it's main exports was and still is salt and the factory
just outside the town is well worth a visit. Located next door to the factory is the Listel Vineyard. The town has
a fortification wall extending to approx 1 mile in length surrounding the town houses and ends with the Constance
tower where a poor lady was held for more than 30 years. Festivals occur on a regular basis and you should look at
the literaturewe leave in the house for the porposed local activities whilst you are there.
