Port-Saint-Louis on bike, the city surrounded by water
Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, born around the port activity, has developed a new face. The Commune was included in the perimeter of the Regional Natural Park of Camargue in February 2011, offering its visitors the Camargue symbols: greater flamingos, horses, salt marshes, beaches ... It now relies on its natural heritage and its cultural identity to revitalize and value its territory, and by taking all necessary measuresto preserve the quality of life.
