When in 650/700 BC, Greeks from Phocaea, seeking shelter, arrived on our shores, they baptized the rocky cape "Agathé Tyche": the "Good Fortune".
Since then, Agde has never stopped living by and for the sea: from antiquity to the eighteenth century, the city has been one of the most important trading ports of the Mediterranean.
Here, the natural and cultural heritage of the city and the archaeological testify of a glorious past that overlap with those of the Mediterranean.
Take the time to stroll through its streets, squares and ramparts, and go visit the local Thursday market.
