A spectacular bullfighting sport
The first testimonies of Camargue races appeared in the 16th century. In this sport, participants try to catch attributes attached to the brow and the horns of bulls called cocardiers. It is mainly practiced in the Herault department, a large part of the Bouches-du-Rhône, and the Gard. The competition does not aim at killing the bull and is divided into three trophies: The Trophée des As, the Trophée des Raseteurs, and the Trophée de l'Avenir. The spectacular confrontations see raseteurs dressed in white facing six or seven consecutive Camargue bulls.
