Discover an exceptional heritage in Camargue
Situated in the Camargue, the city of Saint-Gilles owes its fame to the pilgrimage which developed from the 11th century on around the cult of saint Gilles, and which became the fourth place of pilgrimage of the Christian world after Rome, Jerusalem and Santiago de Compostela.
With its abbey church listed World Heritage by UNESCO in 1998 as part of the routes of Santiago de Compostela in France, Saint-Gilles is a city with a rich medieval past situated in the heart of a territory offering two characteristic faces :
- The Camargue with its traditions, its natural and agricultural landscapes, listed “Grand Site de France” in 2014,
- The Costière with its orchards of fruit trees and its grape-growing hillsides, belonging to the PDO Costières de Nîmes.
