Chemin des Ecluses

This acclaimed feat of engineering – a legendary canal lock – overshadows Bezier’s every other claim to fame. They are essentially 8 ovoid lock chambers and nine gate that were built for a single purpose – to raise boats 21.5 meters over a distance of 300 meters on the Canal du Midi. While today such an engineeri...

2 Impasse Baudin, 34500 Beziers, France

It’ll boggle your mind at just HOW much they’ve managed to stuff into here. Covering about 3000 square metres, the museum tells the story of the whole Bitterios area from prehistory to present. It&rsqu...

Place de la Madeleine
10:00 am - 05:00 pm
You’d never guess the history behind the unassuming 11th century Roman Catholic Gothic church. When the Albigensian Crusader led by Simon de Monfort swept through Beziers, most of the population, about 20000 in all, were massacred. Many were burnt alive in Place de la Madelaine. Though the church itself only opens thrice a week, do visit the ...
