All the towns surrounding the Camargue (Arles, Avignon, Nîmes, etc.) evoke the sun and the singing accent.
The supreme places of La Camargue and the most appreciated by hikers are Saint Rémy and Les Baux villages.
To the northeast, the Alpilles extend over 25 km dominated by the site of Les Baux-de-Provence.
