At the southern end of the Etang de Thau, near S├Ęte on the shores of Languedoc-Roussillon, Agde is an ancient city whose history seems always in connection with the sea: the Greeks have founded the city in ancient times, initiating a vocation of maritime trade that long characterize the city. Medieval and Renaissance were prosperous times for Agde, especially enjoying the piercing of the Canal du Midi to expand its business horizons. Only all good things come to an end and the port of Agde eventually decline ... The city then turned back to the sea to find a second wind, in tourism: this is how out sand and marsh the seaside resort of Cap d'Agde, become since he must admit a kind of tourist factory.
