Walked the walls and viewed the towers. Highly recommended - worth the 8 euros. Don't need a guide to get all information

Not so impressive as for example the walls of Dubrovnik, but still very nice. Stunning views on the town and on the salt mines. Explanations inside the towers. Don't miss it.

Remarkably well preserved. The best view on the city is from the salt mines as there is an open space for miles and miles. One of the many lesser known gems in the crown of France.

You simply can't stay in Aigues-Mortes and not walk the ramparts- the views are spectacular and it really gives you a different perspective of this preserved medieval city.

Probably not suitable with a buggy but providing the little ones can climb steps they will love it. Make sure you go down to the wetlands beyond the wall and watch the otters
