Along France's southwestern coast close to the dramatic range of Pyrenees Mountains is the region of Languedoc and the port of Sete. Until 1928, it was known as "Cette". Sete is a commune in Herault department in Occitanie region, southern France, and its inhabitants are called "Setois". Sete is also known as "The Venice of Languedoc" and "The singular island". It has a total area of 24.21 km2 (9.35 ml2) and a population of around 42,790 inhabitants (2008 census).
Mediterranean's biggest fishing port and bustling harbour town, the original island site of Sete is today linked to mainland by natural silting. The genuine mood of colourful Vieux Port, reserved for fishing boats, and the mellow facades, shaded squares, pedestrian streets, and many bridges, quays and canals of the town offer delightful strolling. Sete has attracted a large number of artists. 7 miles of sandy beach stretch from Plage de la Corniche.
Sete is also gateway to Arles, Carcassonne, Les Baux and Montpellier to the north. Montpellier is a historic city that was the 12th century site of the first medical school in Europe, established after years of trading medicinal plants. In 1289 the school became a university. Montpellier was capital of lower Languedoc under the reign of Louis XIV, and the city rapidly expanded. The ancient city of Nimes is also worth a visit. An important Roman town it was favored by Augustus, who embellished it with beautiful buildings, Nimes has well preserved Roman monuments.
