At the foot of the Mount St-Clair, an ancient island at 175 m altitude and which is linked to the land by two strips of sand, Sète was built by command by Louis XIV in order to have a more reliable port than in Marseille. Soon fishermen, mostly Italians, came to settle here whilst commerce prospered with the colonies... This city which conserved its original atmosphere contained its original dimension.
