Artists and artisans and performers and gathered together in a beautiful town that feels like a work of art in itself - this is how Pezenas feels. Less than an hour from Beziers and less than an hour from the Mediterannean, this historic town is richly steeped in history, but also keeps company with the present.
As you wander around the cobblestone streets, each turn opens up a new discovery. These vibrant paintings and their creator felt tucked away from the main flow of pedestrian traffic, through an archway and out into a tiny sidestreet. But once there, the bold colors of his artwork blended in perfectly with the warm tones of the town walls and classic Provence sunlight.
Wander, explore, discover - Pezenas has plenty to offer!
