The river Rhône

Tarascon, Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, Arles - Landscape

The Rhone and its delta have not only given their name to the department, but this peaceful and majestic river also forms the backbone of the Bouches-du-Rhone. From Avignon to the Camargue beaches, the river passes through the most authentic Provençal landscapes. Famous for a long time for the rapidity of its current and the fury of its floods, the Rhone was only really developed from the 19th century, with diking and the creation of locks and canals.

Along its banks stand Avignon, Tarascon, Beaucaire and Arles, where the river splits into two branches - the Grand and the Petit Rhone - between which lies the Camargue. These two branches of the river are navigable and offer tourists access to the most unique discoveries of the Camargue.
