The city is worth a visit to gaze upon its ancient bridge and hilltop cathedral, one of the prettier views (from atop or below) in France.
- Beziers’ Saint-Nazaire Cathedral, with portions dating back to the 12th century, is worth the rigorous stair climb for a visit to the cathedral and, more significantly, splendid views of the village and surrounding area.
- Beziers’ Old Bridge, or Pont Vieux, has spanned the River Orb since the 12th century. The Old Cemetery, or Cimetière Vieux, is only from the 1800s, but its outstanding sculpture art making it a fascinating, unique and visually captivating attraction.
- Chateau de Lignon is just outside of town, but this impressive estate earns the visitor’s extra drive-time. It sits on 15 acres, and includes interesting perks such as a helicopter pad and mountain-bike rentals.
- Hotel le Licorne is inexpensive, friendly and a short drive to Beziers’ city center or the beach. The dining room is cozy and relaxed.
