If you come to Sète you must make the effort to come up to Mont Saint Clair. You'll get the best views of this area - a panoramic view if the weather is good. You can see for miles. Free parking too.

Stunning view overlooking the city of Sete and its beautiful Harbor. It gets a bit breezy, so a jacket is advised. But it is worth the drive up the mountain.

You can climb that Not very high But steep Mountain from the City centre, Talking about 30min. There is a small viewing terrace offering great views to Sète and the mediterranian See. Worth to Visit.
