During her visit to the Thau Archipelago,
Madi fell under the spell of Sète

Admittedly, at first sight, Sète probably does not appear to be a cultural city, yet a lot is happening there. It is a city with a strong history and is dynamic. Fans of architecture and urban planning will be interested in the history of this city born at the same time as the Canal du Midi.
The summer season offers a lot of possibilities, between song or jazz festivals in particular. The sea theatre where some of the concerts are held overlooks the water and must offer a breathtaking view. Not to mention, of course, George Brassens, who sang so much about his city, which now devotes a very beautiful space to him, which I enjoyed visiting a few years ago.

But Sète is also a museum of modest arts where you can find eccentric paintings and funny showcases. I really like its photo festival which for a few years now has been held every year at the beginning of May and which always offers very interesting things, I had some very good surprises there and it was for me the opportunity to go also to places never explored before.
Finally, there is a beautiful love story between Sète and street art. There are many frescoes in the city, of all styles and sizes. It is also linked to a festival held there and there is a map that allows you to explore the city through its street art.
