Once a defensive site, of which the Ville Close is the most precious vestige, the town developed around its fishing port specialising in sardines and tuna. Today it is an industrial fishing port where many canneries are located. You will be able to visit these artisanal canneries in the port and taste their products in the shops.
Thanks to its lake, the town is also oriented towards yachting and seaside activities with a beautiful thalassotherapy centre. The marina located in the town centre attracts many visiting sailors, making it a very lively place.
