The Camargue is formed by the Rhone delta shape with alpine alluvium. This is an area of swamps and ponds where the sea is never far away. Like all wetlands, it is a place where life abounds. The birds are king. I'll put in as the pictures of these sparrows in the blog: flamingo, heron, egret for more but the stilts.
The animal symbol of the Camargue is the bull. The area is one of the feria with bull runs and races the same. Of course, there are also bullfights and here I am less a fan.
Saintes-Maries-de-la Mer is the capital. Its church dates to the oldest parts of the twelfth century. For our part after having lunch, we went swimming there. It was not very pleasant as the wind blew and the Mediterranean was worthy of the Atlantic Ocean.
