<h2>Historic assets on the Mediterranean</h2>
<p>Hérault is located in the <a href="https://www.laregion.fr/-Decouvrez-l-Occitanie-" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Occitanie region</a>, in the south of France.

The coast is made up of seaside resorts, 2 of which (La Grande Motte and Cap d’Agde) have been classified as “20th century heritage”.</p>
