Located on the right bank of the Rhône, half way between Avignon and Beaucaire, the village of Aramon forms an amphitheatre at the foot of its castle, which is built on top of a rocky outcrop. This has always been a haven for sailors.
The village's port has been active since Roman times and reached its apogee in the 17th century. Oil, wines, salt and cereals were sent through Aramon to the whole of France.
In terms of recent History, the rural economy revolved around basket making up to the 1960s, with many workshops vannerie in the village.
Aramon then enjoyed a period of rapid development thanks to several industrial installations and work by the Compagnie Nationale du Rhône to build the Vallabrègues dam. The village has retained its agricultural spirit though with fruit orchards, vineyards and olive groves beautifully setting off its architectural heritage which includes numerous 15th to 17th century residences.
