Pézenas is a really pretty town with a much appreciated architectural heritage.
The historical part of the town is entirely pedestrian with animated little streets, so it’s very easy to walk around. Some of the big town houses of the 17th and 18th centuries open their courtyards for visits throughout the year or on specific cultural or theatrical occasions.
Choose a guided tour organized by the Tourist Office to make the most of discovering the treasures of the town. You will hear the history of Molière, illustrious dramatic author and comedian, and Boby Lapointe a well-known singer/songwriter who was a native of Pezenas.
Pézenas is also very popular for its handicrafts, with many stalls and little shops to delight those who are looking for beautiful things! Jewellers, potters, weavers, engravers, gilders, cabinet makers … take your choice!
If you are good at rummaging, the antique quarter is just a step away. You can find real bargains!
Don’t leave without having tasted the specialties of the place: petit pâté de Pezenas, and the berlingot.
