“Agde, France - Charming and Historic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2011

The city of Agde is one of the oldest in France, and the old part of town is very picturesque and so interesting. It can be reached by train, but we were staying outside of town and took a bus to the city centre. The Canal Midi waterway, built by the Romans, runs thru Agde and is a World Heritage site. Part of the canal includes one of only 3 circular boat "locks" in the world. Agde is very picturesque, with its very narrow cobble-stone streets, wooden shutters on windows, ancient wooden doors opening onto courtyards, churches that date back to 872 AD, an underground cavern built hundreds of years ago to store ice, many museums, cafes, shops, galleries, boats on the river that house restaurants. Visit the tourist info centre and pick up walking tour booklets, and other info. We only spent one day here, but would love to have had the time to go back and explore further. Well worth the visit.
