La Camargue

Language: French

Description: La Camargue is an area of salt marshes in the delta of the Rhône at the south western corner of Provence. It is marshy with several shallow lagoons. Flamingoes haunt these lagoons and salt is made in salt pans in the south, while horses, sheep, cattle and bulls for the ring are raised in the north. As more land is reclaimed rice is becoming a major crop and vines are being cultivated. It is also a name for a cheese.
