Lodève center

A city of art and history and former textile capital for 200 years (17th to 19th centuries), Lodève lies on an ancient Gallo-Roman trade route. It is known as the capital of the Hérault « highlands ».

The town center boasts an unparalleled architectural heritage, bearing witness to the days when it was an influential episcopal city, a mecca for local culture and a showcase for local produce and traditions. Staying in Lodève, you can visit the Savonnerie carpet factory – where carpets for embassies and national monuments are woven – the apothecary – which recalls the important role played by the hospital in the past – the Saint-Fulcran cathedral – dating from the 5th to the 10th century – the former episcopal palace – built between 1667 and 1779, today the seat of the Town Hall – and the Lodève museum. Don’t miss the seven bridges spanning the Lergue and Soulondres rivers, unique witnesses to medieval and modern times (until the 19th century).
