The authentic villages, which for a long time lived from the cultivation of vines and olive trees, now welcome tourists. Daudet’s mill in Fontvieille, the castle of Les Baux, the archaeological site of Glanum, the quarries of Lights Ecomuseum of La Crau, the historical heritage of the Alpilles offers many treasures.

The Camargue bullfighting tradition

The Camargue has a long tradition of bull rearing. On the farms, known as manades, the gardians and herdsmen have been practising bullfighting games for centuries.

In the Camargue bullfighting games, participants have to win trophies attached to the bulls’ horns. The animals are not harmed during these games.
