We need more than ever to spend a rejuvenating holiday in a quiet place close to nature. Close to the sea, the camping Vias Plage welcomes you in a green domain where you can breathe a breath of fresh air. The 3-star establishment is located in Vias, in the Hérault region, and is a convenient starting point for discovering other destinations such as Pézenas, a small town located 20 minutes away by car.
Many visitors, like Molière and former governors of Languedoc centuries ago, fall under the spell of this charming town in the Hérault. The city can pride itself in particular on its rich cultural heritage, with for example local craftsmen whose know-how continues to fascinate, or a theatre which occupies an important place there. The trip is also a great opportunity to discover the many buildings that make up the rich architectural heritage of the city.
Pézenas may be a small town, but it still has many places that arouse the curiosity and even fascination of visitors. We have selected five of the places of interest that are worth a visit:
The building, whose origins date back to 1735, is among the most beautiful jewels of the region’s religious heritage. It is recognisable in particular by the couples adorning its side aisles, its north chapel but above all by its organ, which is reminiscent of those in the church of Saint-Roch in Paris.
This is one of the largest concentrations of listed monuments in France. Among the must-see sites are hoteliers, buildings with monumental doors and the Sainte-Ursule church. Enthusiasts are also interested in sculpture trails honouring Boby Lapointe…
Attending one of the performances of this theatre founded in 1803 is also a way to appreciate the local cultural heritage. The establishment takes advantage of each performance to pay tribute to this art and especially to Molière, a brilliant actor who was passionate about the city of Piscénoise.
A must-see cultural space, the museum is the place to go to learn more about the history of the city. Housed in a 16th-century mansion, it includes a room featuring Molière, too.
Let yourself be tempted by a walk with your family or friends in this domain that once belonged to the governors of Languedoc. Inside, you will be subjugated by the beauty of its Italian garden whose terraces overlook the Hérault plain. Walking along the path through the park, you will have the chance to admire the façade of the castle. The estate can be the last stop on your tour of the city or a place to recharge your batteries before continuing your journey. In any case, the setting is splendid, where you can recharge your batteries and enjoy the beautiful view.
