    In 2009 a Requinarium was opened in Seaquarium. It houses 25 different species of sharks and offers discovery workshops all about sharks, this animal that we find so attractive and so frightening!

  • La statue du Pescalune

    La statue du Pescalune

    Inaugurated on 12 March 2006, the statue of Pescalune is the work of sculptor Ben K.
    It evokes the famous legend of Pescalune. In Lunel, in the 15th century, the fishermen from this small hamlet developed a fishing technique to catch lots of eels. By baiting the bottom of baskets held by ropes, the fishermen caught the voracious eels on moonless nights. This practice of night fishing, on dark nights, quickly became a legend - the fishermen seemed in effect to have fished the moon!

  • Phare de la Méditerranée de Palavas-les-Flots

    Phare de la Méditerranée de Palavas-les-Flots

    Twenty or so kilometres from Montpellier and on the bus route, the Mediterranean Lighthouse at Palavas-les-Flots is an exceptional site. This former water tower was dramatically converted at the end of the 1980s, to become a modern and ergonomic space.

    The Mediterranean Lighthouse at Palavas-les-Flots is 45m high with 12 floors, of which the first three are occupied by the Palavas-les-Flots Conference Centre.

    The promenade deck, the revolving panoramic restaurant (the floor rotates every 90 minutes) and the panoramic lift (20 seconds to reach the top) are a must-see when you visit the Mediterranean Lighthouse at Palavas-les-Flots.
