  • Visit and a typical Camargue Lunch in a "Manade" (black bulls and horses breeding, herding together).

  • You'll begin the afternoon by visiting the small village of the Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, famous for the Gipsies' Pilgrimage twice a year and for its church consecrated to the black virgin.
