The major southeast port of the Occitanie region, Sète was once called the Venice of Languedoc because of its canals system. Its locals are very proud to have their own cultural identity, cuisine and even dialect.
If your cruise ship arrives to Sète, you have an opportunity to take a fascinating trip with us to Carcassonne and to explore its main sights and Jewish heritage.
There is evidence that the Jewish community was present in Carcassonne already in the 12th century – however, not for long, as in the 14th century, Jews were expelled from this region. Although no actual Jewish sites were preserved, the memory of medieval times remains along the meandering streets.
The main tourist attraction in Carcassonne is its massive and impressive castle. Huge city walls remind visitors of the times when this town had important strategic meaning. Medieval old town, which is situated inside these walls, looks like an illustration in a fairy-tale. It is impossible to resist its charms!
