Mèze is a commune in the Hérault department in southern France.Its inhabitants are called Mézois.GeographySituated on the étang de Thau, Mèze shares with Bouzigues its historic role as the oyster capital of the area. Almost a third of its inhabitants depend on the fishing industry for their livelihood. In recent years, tourism and transport have become increasingly central to the local economy.HistoryAn important port since Phoenician times, Mèze has always primarily been a fishing town. During the Roman Empire, the town lay on the main Southern route from Italy to Spain - the 'Via Domitia'.The Romans brought wine to the area and left a legacy of architecture including two of the town's churches. The production of shellfish, especially oysters, has been the mainstay of the Mèze economy for almost a century and the whole Basin de Thau area has built an international reputation for the quality of its seafood.Sights Old village center Port Mèze: both a working fishing harbor and a port for recreational boating. Lagunage ecological site Dinosaur Plain' palenthology museum. Eglise Saint Hilaire La Chapelle des Pénitents (12th century) Le château de Girard (end of 17th century) Remains of city walls St-Jean-de-la-Garrigue, former parish church, built in romanesque style.
