Camargue traditions and culture

Tourism in the Camargue offers much more than breathtaking scenery. The local culture, steeped in centuries-old traditions, fascinates visitors. Attend a Camargue race, a unique bullfighting tradition in which men try to catch an attribute fixed between the bull’s horns. This practice, far removed from Spanish bullfighting, emphasizes the bond between man and animal, while respecting local traditions.

Traditional festivals, such as the Fête de la Saint-Georges, also offer visitors a chance to immerse themselves in Camargue culture. Music, dance and traditional costumes create a warm, festive atmosphere, giving travellers an authentic cultural experience.
