Meet your guide at the Molière statue.
Starting the tour by the city centre, you may discover the old streets of Pézenas. The atmosphere created by a very well preserved city centre is due to the fact the city was never modernized until the 18th century.
Pézenas kept very beautiful cobblestone streets leading you to the past. In the Middle Ages the town was known for being a very important fair and trading centre, attracting very wealthy merchants. Some courtyards of medieval private mansions are still opened to the public. Your guide will explain you how the important families used to live there. Famous for its Art and Craft activities, Pézenas will charm you with its small shops. There discover local specialities and hand craft objects made in the city (jewellery, glass blower etc...)
If you enjoy theatre you may also be enchanted to know that the famous French play writer Molière lived there for some years.
