Usually, when you think about the South of France, you think about the Riviera, about lavish resorts and sparkling beaches. I, however, will always think about my time in a beautiful town in Languedoc province. Beziers looks much more like a Spanish city than a French one, and it’s a few miles away from the Mediterranean, so no beach for you. But you shouldn’t be discouraged. Its blend of French and Spanish cultures is so unique and interesting you’ll soon forget all about the dazzling beaches. This is actually the amazing view from Cathédrale Saint-Nazaire de Béziers, on the outskirts of the city.
