Aigues-Mortes Wheelchair Accessible Tours
Aigues Mortes wheelchair accessible tours, is located in the south of France, on marshy land which, even through a series of canals, stretches to the Mediterranean Sea.
The most famous of these is called Grau-du-Roi and a movable bridge has been built over it that allows the passage of trains.
The very Catholic King Louis IX had Aigues-Mortes built because he needed an outlet on the Mediterranean to organize a crusade in Palestine and had no intention of using the port of Marseille, then a foreign land.
Up until that time, the only ones who agreed to live in this area of Occitania were the salt workers, fishermen and Benedictines of the Abbey of Psalmodi.
To convince citizens to live in this area made up only of marshes, ponds, swamps and mosquitoes, the King offers tax exemptions and other privileges.
Then has a fortified town built from scratch with the inviting name of Aigues-Mortes, Death Waters.
Despite the name, this village is one of the things to see absolutely in Occitania.
