Sightseeing tours

Bull entertainements


The Camargue culture is still alive and strongly anchored in the social and economic region's life.

The Camargue is the only region of France where traditions are essentially oriented toward horses and mostly bulls.

From Aigues-Mortes to Fos sur Mer, bull worshiping is called "la Fé di Biou". Camargue bull rearing is inseparable from horse rearing. The surveillance, maintenance, caring of the cattle, change of pasture, and picking of the bull for the courses à la cocarde are all done horse riding as bulls live completely free in the swamps and sansouïres.

Working with knowledge and passion, the gardians of the Manade de Méjanes installed on the Domaine de Méjanes keep the historically rich Camargue culture, alive.

You will discover the unique and mesmerising Domaine de Méjanes's universe attending and taking part in the bull shows happening in an astounding decor : traditional branding, calf branding, cows or bulls cocarde, gardians games, visits of the manade in a small towed trailer. As many rare and convivial moments of discovery in the heart of a legendary Camargue domain. Our little paradise at the end of the world.
