the Mediterranean sea is here!
Between Agde and Cap d'Agde, Mont Saint-Loup marks the southern end of the Auvergne volcanoes. He cut the coast by creating islets, coves, beaches and cliffs... The city of Agde, the "Perle Noire" is one of the oldest French cities with its 26 centuries of history. It nestles at the crossroads of the Canal du Midi and the Hérault River. The use of anthracite-coloured volcanic stone has shaped its unique identity, unique in Languedoc. Labelled "Villes et Métiers d’Art", shimmering alleys and artists' workshops animate the heart of this city of character with a southern accent. The famous family seaside resort of Cap d'Agde is a vast complex open to the sea, to be discovered on foot or by bike thanks to the maze of pedestrian paths and cycle paths. The "Patrimoine du XXème siècle" label has been awarded to Cap d'Agde for the architectural quality of its facilities in accordance with the shapes and colours typical of Languedoc villages.
