When vacation sightseeing in the Camargue you will see many Camargue Salt Works: What looks like sand is actually Camargue sea salt harvested from Mediterranean Sea water in huge evaporation pools that continue a tradition that goes back to Medieval times.
Sightseeing along the old canals north of the Camargue see remnants of Roman agricultural endeavors and the Medieval era salt works.  
Camargue Sea Salt is served  at the table. Called Fleur de Sel, by some packagers, this finishing salt is  sprinkled lightly on food to give the food a touch of salt without salting the whole meal.
The Camargue cottage, home of the Guardians, the tenders of the Camargue horses and bulls,  is a unique stucco and thatch dwelling. Many of these are rent to vacation sightseers.

  • White Horses
The Gardians cull the young horses for saddle horses.   
They are a gentle and intelligent horse possessed of stamina and agility and a liking for people.  
One source claims that the Camargue horses are a millenniums-old breeding stock used by Celtic people, Greeks,  Romans, Arabs, and others who lived along the Rhone or would come by ship to the mouth of the Rhone to cull out the young for war horses.   
  • Camargue Horse History           
Some researchers believe that the Camargue horse is pure and indigenous to the Rhone Delta and stems from a  primitive breed found  locally as fossilized bones.
Others link their traits to the Spanish war horse, their small size at  13 hands would have made them excellent shipboard travelers and their stamina and strength would have made them an ideal war horse.  At 13 hands they are technically a pony.

The immature Camargue horse is black or brown in color but upon reaching adulthood at about four years will turn to the familiar white color.
The Camargue Guardian uses the Camargue horse to manage the black Camargue bulls that they raise in the vast grassland of the Camargue.  Often they will pasture a Camargue horse with a herd of young bulls.
