Sete — The most beautiful port in Southern France
Although not one of the most famous and prominent destinations in the South of France, Sete is a unique city with its own character that is worth visiting. Known as the Venice of Languedoc, it is a port and a seaside resort in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the Mediterranean with its own very strong cultural identity, traditions and cuisine. Sete, built on and around Mont St. Clair, is located on the southern end of the Thau Lagoon (Étang de Thau), an enclosed salt water lake. On the other side, lies the Mediterranean, and the town has a network of canals which are linked between the lagoon and the Mediterranean Sea.
