Facing both the sea and the wine-growing plains, this land tells an age-old story. Founded in the 7th century B.C. by the Phocaeans, Agatha Tyche, Agde la Bonne Fortune by its Greek name, was the second Roman colony after Marseille. The last link in the chain of Auvergne volcanoes, Agde was nicknamed by Marco Polo "the black pearl of the Mediterranean" because of its geological peculiarity: volcanic stone - basalt - is present everywhere. As the daughter of water, it has remained anchored in its maritime traditions. During your walks, you will discover the history of this city through a rich heritage that will transport you from Greek antiquity to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Each street, monument and rampart is a piece of its history. Its inhabitants continue to preserve it through ancient traditions such as the wine festival, the sea festival, jousting tournaments... Adjacent to Mont Saint-Loup, embraced by the Mediterranean Sea, the city offers four faces: Agde, the historic city with picturesque streets, Le Cap d'Agde, the seaside resort flagship of the Occitania Region, the Grau d'Agde, colorful village and kingdom of fishermen and the Tamarissière, historic site with the pine forest two hundred years. As for the naturist village of Cap d'Agde, you will find all the information on www.capdagde.com.
