This small Camargue town is completely surrounded by huge castle walls, as we made our way from the car park alongside the boats bobbing about on the water it was obvious there was something special in the air.
As we went through the gates of the town we discovered that it had been taken back to its medieval roots to celebrate the Fête de St Louis. Everywhere were tents and everyone was dressed in medieval attire.
One thing which brought us back to modern day with a bump was the amount of obvious security patrolling the event. Gendarmes, private security and army with their guns at the ready. The question really is, does this make one feel more or less secure?
