The Camargue


This wetland, the delta where the Rhône River empties into the Mediterranean Sea, is a place where people cohabit with flamingos and egrets, black bulls, white horses, water and sky.

It is one of the areas in Western Europe with the highest level of biodiversity.

In 1970, the Camargue Natural Park was created in order to conserve the delicate balance between the environment and human activity.

The park extends over three town districts, Arles, Port Saint Louis and Saintes Maries de la Mer. The latter is known as the capital of the Camargue.
