Sigean, a territorial crossroads
Sigean lies at the crossroads of several exceptional sites: the Mediterranean Sea, the Bages-Sigean lakes and the Corbières Massif. Suffice it to say the scenery will take your breath away!
In times gone by, it was also at the crossroads of civilizations. Inhabited since ancient times by the Elisyces, the Romans, and later on the border with the Kingdom of Spain, Sigean has preserved a rich heritage that's still visible today. ! Take a stroll through the historic centre and see for yourself!
The "Réserve Africaine"A little piece of Africa in the heart of the Côte du Midi

The reserve is visited via a one-hour drive and a three-hour walk.
