Discover Béziers in the Mediterranean
On the banks of the Orb, a few kilometers upstream from the Valras-Plage resort in Béziers, the town's veritable seafront, Béziers is crossed by the Canal du Midi. The wealth of works that punctuate the canal has earned it the nickname of the city of nine locks: the whole is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Seductive by its immense heritage as much as by the dynamism of its cultural life, Béziers is a city of character, renowned for its traditional festivals, its flower markets and the excellence of its vineyards. The silhouette of its walled city stands out against the clear Hérault sky, dominated by its imposing Gothic cathedral.
