I used to live here and spent a large part of my childhood here ,so theres no photo's ( too embarrasing ) . However this part of France often get overlooked despite its Volcanic landscape and Franco-Catalan culture.
Agde is where i used to live and is known as the black pearl of the Med becuase the houses are built from the the volcanic basalt spat out out by nearby Mount St Loup.
Theres a particulary good black sand volcanic beach nearby at La Conque.
You can go shopping in Pezenas ,go to the funfair at Vias ,see the naked germans at Cap D'agde or watch the yachting in Sete. However the highlight would have to be the jousting and fireworks on the Herault river in Agde.
Giant rowing boats with a flat platform on the front ,row at each other and a bloke with a lance tries to knock the other one into the river.
Try and find a town advertising taureau piscine which involves a swimming pool ,several young bulls and handfull of volunteers from the crowd.
- Pros:Volcanoes , Jousting
- Cons:Fat Naked Germans
