Caderousse, a village with 2,831 inhabitants (as of 01/01/2017)

The originality of Caderousse is its impressive embankment (10 metres high and almost 2 km long), built in 1856 to protect the town from uncontrollable flooding from the Rhone. The embankment looks down on the village and is open at two points: at Porte Léon Roche and Porte Castellan. From the sky, the lines of majestic plane trees around the village make Caderousse an isle of greenery, hence its nickname, the “Green Island”.

Main sights:

The Town Hall, built in 1752, crowned by a belfry and an elegant bell tower
