Land of Mediterranean pilgrimage

Surrounded by lagoons and set in a protected environment, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer is famous for the gypsy pilgrimage that takes place every year, bestowing upon the town a flamboyant atmosphere. In this area, bulls and horses are king and you can visit many manades (bull and horse-breeding ranches) located on the outskirts of the city. In the town centre, don’t miss out on a visit to the Romanesque fortress church and to Port Gardian, the fishing port and marina.
