Sete is a commune in the department of Herault in the south of France. It is located on the Mediterranean Sea, near the Languedoc coast. The city is known for its canals, which were built in the late 19th century to facilitate the transport of goods and people.

Sete was founded in the 5th century by the Romans, who named it Cette. The city was an important port in the Middle Ages and was a major trading hub. During the Renaissance, Sete was a center of art and culture, and many famous artists, writers, and musicians lived there.

The city was occupied by the Spanish in the 16th century and later by the French in the 17th century. In the 19th century, the canals were built to connect the city to the sea and to facilitate the transport of goods and people.

During World War II, Sete was occupied by the Germans, and many of its inhabitants were deported to concentration camps. After the war, the city was rebuilt and its economy was revitalized.

Today, Sete is a popular tourist destination, with its canals and its vibrant nightlife. It is also home to many festivals, including the annual Fete de la Musique, which is held in the summer.
