Blog Post: Arles – Sete
Comments: Sète (Seta in Occitan) is a commune in the Hérault department in Languedoc-Roussillon in southern France and is known as the Venice of Languedoc.
Built upon and around Mont St Clair, Sète is situated on the south-eastern hub of the Bassin de Thau, an enclosed salt water lake used primarily for oyster and mussel fields. To its other side lies the Mediterranean.
Sète is the eastern starting point of the Canal du Midi, and the ending point of the Canal du Rhône à Sète.
