Major tourist attractions

In the South of France, the Languedoc invites you to discover its many remarkable,
unique, man-made and natural sites.

Close to the Mediterranean sea, in the mountains, around town or in the vineyards, there's a huge choice of things to do and discover... Discover them now!

  • In the Hérault gorges, the main tourist attraction 'Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert – Gorges de l’Hérault’ is one of Languedoc’s gems. It is thus no surprise that it has been awarded the 'most beautiful villages of France' label.

  • In Languedoc, there is an amazing natural site, carved out of the limestone of the Causses plateau: the ‘Grand Site du Cirque de Navacelles’ (Cirque de Navacelles Major Tourist Attraction)

  • In a rather unexpected setting, Languedoc offers visitors the major site of the Salagou Valley and Cirque de Mourèze: a unique leisure site, protected from urban development and with the 'Natura 2000' label.

  • Listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites,
    the Canal du Midi and the Fonseranes locks are little gems you really must not miss if you're holidaying in the South of France.

  • Right beside the Mediterranean sea, in the South of France, this salt water lake or lagoon irrigates the Pays de Thau area, including Sète, Balaruc-les-Bains, Bouzigues, Mèze and Marseillan.

  • Come and discover the mountains of Languedoc. With its stunning viewpoints, the Haut-Languedoc Regional Natural Park is like a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean sea.

  • A Languedoc archaeological site that is now a listed
    National Monument,
    the Oppidum d’Ensérune is
    one of the most important Gaulish villages in the South of France.

  • Near Montpellier, in Languedoc, the Pic Saint Loup offers a natural panoramic viewpoint
    with breathtaking vistas
    over the Cévennes mountains
    and the Mediterranean sea.

  • Between the Montagne Noire and the Canal du Midi, Minerve offers an imposing entrance to the Haut-Languedoc Regional Natural Park, and is one of the 'most beautiful villages of France'.

  • Between the Mediterranean sea and its lagoons, and just 4 km west of Palavas-les-Flots, this former bishop's palace can be found on a peninsula covered in pine trees and vineyards and appropriately nicknamed 'Cathédrale des Sables' (Cathedral of the Sands).

  • Between the Pont du Diable and Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, you'll find Clamouse, one of the most beautiful caves in Bas Languedoc, awarded 3 Michelin stars. This cave, with its incredibly rich concretions, has been awarded 'scientific and picturesque' status.

  • Also awarded 3 Michelin stars,
    the 'Grotte des Demoiselles' (Maidens’ Cave) in Languedoc, is a truly breathtaking spectacle. Deep in the depths of the Thaurac plateau, visit the site with your family
    and discover this amazing underground cathedral.
