Bessan is a commune in the Hérault department of the Languedoc-Roussillon region in France. Its inhabitants are known as 'Bessanais' in French.GeographyBuilt among vineyards on the Hérault river, Bessan is a mainly agricultural village. In the past, its port was used to ship wines and other spirits.Located a few kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea, it contains the Ricard distillery and Cactus Park botanical garden.HistoryAround 600 BC, Greeks settled in Bessan on the oppidum of Monadière to trade.In 218 BC the Carthaginian general Hannibal crossed the region with his army and war elephants to attack the Romans, passing between Bessan and Montblanc.In 408-409 AD Béziers, Agde and the region were ransacked by an army of Germanic (Burgundians, Suevi, Vandals), Slavic (Alan) and other tribes.In 737, Charles Martel entered the province at the head of the French, temporarily pushing back the Saracens, and destroyed Béziers, Agde and the surrounding countryside to prevent the Saracens from returning and fortifying the region.
