St Bonnet du Gard
The village is located in a valley between Avignon and Nîmes. It overlooks the Gardon to Remoulins trail. The village is on the former salt trading route from Remoulins. The Psalmodi monks who produced salt near to Aigues Mortes built the 9th century church which was fortified in the 14th century. The local economic activity is set to the rhythm of the production of olive oil and wine and is underpinned by a strongly developed network of craftsmen.
