Arles and the Camargue

In Camargue the borders become uncertain, between Languedoc and Provence, the river, the sea, the earth and the sky are mixed. In this vast area of 150,000 hectares of lagoons and ponds where flamingos and other migratory bird species roam, people raise horses and bulls, remaining faithful to the traditions of the guardians. It is a large natural area to be discovered on foot, by bike or by car, from the vast fine sandy beaches to the heritage riches of the cities.
