Wild horses, flamingos, bulls, migratory birds... 100% dream material
The Camargue, second largest delta in Europe, is a famous biosphere reserve reknown for the richness and the diversity of species.
But I think it's mainly its character that makes it unique.
No place in the world looks like the Camargue!
Unique because of the mix of wildlife, especially the famingos, and a traditional breeding of bullfighting bulls and gardian horses.
Unique because of the ancient, but very lively, traditions in the architecture, the clothing, the habit, the gastronomy, the way of life, the ranch that we call here "manade".
Unique because of land made of salt marshes and rice fields, long sand dunes punctuated with men made canals, salt lakes lined with boulders and tamarisks. . .
Unique because of that unexpected mix of Andalusia, Far West and Provence, with a touch of gypsy culture.
Unique because of the Guardians on their typical horses, who created a world within, symbolized by the famous Camargue cross.
Sometime, when you leave Camargue, you're not the same person anymore. . .
