A living maritime heritage

Sète has a living maritime heritage, commercial ports and cruise terminals, a fishing port in the heart of the town, and a fish auction supplied by a whole fleet of trawlers and tuna boats.

Other reminders of its maritime history can be seen in the fishermen’s districts, the traditional Catalan fishing boats along the canals, Fort St Pierre (now the Théâtre de la Mer), the Musée de la Mer, and the famous Pardon de St Pierre fishermen’s festival, etc. 

And last but not least, ‘Escale à Sète’ is the top festival of maritime traditions, when all manner of maritime-related themes come together in one place, for you to discover a unique heritage and a host of colourful characters.
