A stunning aqueduct which took water from Uzès to Nîmes. Built in Roman times, it is the highest known aqueduct of its era.
In all Camargue celebrations, the Camargue horse always has a role. He is the huntsman's perfect companion and an indispensable means of transport across these marshy areas. The Camargue bulls, with black skin, live in perfect harmony with their the white horses which share their grazing areas.
Saintes Marie de la Mer is situated next to the Mediterranean Sea, at the heart of the national park of the Camargue, and is about 40 minutes away by car.
