Béziers is situated at the heart of the largest vineyard in the world the Languedoc Roussillon and is the capitol of wine for the region. The wines of St.Chinian, Corbières, Minervois and Fitou now count as some of the finest to be found in France. Béziers is a beautiful town, its many squares with pavement cafés and restaurants, good shopping, a covered market 'Les Halles', with superb fresh fish, cheese, paté, vegetables etc. There is also a variety of outdoor markets every week. A magnificent cathedral and other historic buildings, art galleries and museums.
It is the birthplace of Pierre Paul Riquet, the builder over, 300 years ago, of the Canal du Midi, a truly magnificent engineering achievement which connects the Mediteranean with the City of Toulouse. The canal is now a paradise for cruising and leisure, and it is possible to hire a boat for the day, or dine out on a restaurant barge.
The world-famous Béziers Feria takes place in August each year.
This is a four to five day carnival which reflects the life of Catalonia - with a mixture of French and Spanish traditions - including bullfighting in the Béziers Bullring. Street parties and a mardi gras atmosphere help make a unique experience and one not to be missed.
