Aigues-Mortes is a French commune in the Gard department in the Occitanie region of southern France.The medieval city walls surrounding the city are well preserved.The inhabitants of the commune are known as Aigues-Mortais or Aigues-Mortaises.GeographyAigues-Mortes is located in the Petite Camargue some 90km northwest of Marseilles. By road, Aigues-Mortes is about 33km southwest of Nîmes, and 20km east of Montpellier in a direct line. Access to the commune is by route D979 coming south from Saint-Laurent-d'Aigouze to Aigues-Mortes town. Route D979 continues southwest through the commune to Le Grau-du-Roi. Route D62 also starts from Aigues-Mortes heading southwest parallel to D979 before turning eastwards and forming part of the southern border of the commune. Route D62A continues to Plan d'Eau du Vidourie.The commune is composed of a portion of the wet plains and lakes of the Petite Camargue. It is separated from the Gulf of Lions (and, thus, the Mediterranean) by the town of Le Grau-du-Roi, however Aigues-Mortes is connected to the sea through the Canal du Rhône à Sète. There is only one other hamlet in the commune called Mas de Jarras Listel on the western border.
