Le Grau du Roi

Le Grau du Roi
A village in the Petite Camargue. At the beginning only some fishing cottages, it gained importance in the sixteenth century when the Rhone created a new channel directly from Aigues Mortes to the sea. Later on this communication became a canal, in the picture you see its last part, just before flowing into the sea.
The village of fishers and farmers became a separate commune in 1879 and turned to tourism at the end of the 19th century. Nowadays is still very frequented by tourists.
