The Old Port

Inaugurated in 1666, the Sète Port was a main place within the wine trade, taking advantages of its strategic situation at the confluence of the Canal du Midi and the sea.

Today, this port is mainly frequented by the fishermen who sale every day at 15.30 the fishes they’ve caught. Such a typical place of the city.

Mooring point of the fishing boats, this large canal is at the heart of the city where there are the best bars and restaurants.

Each year, at the end of august, this place is converted in the main scene of the Saint-Louis festivity where you can discover the well-known nautical battles.
