Serignan art museum

serignan artThe little Languedoc coastal town of Serignan, just south of Beziers, is home to not only a modern art gallery, but also a popular contemporary theatre. In the centre of Serignan, a small hard working old Languedoc wine town, you will find a modern art gallery housed in a disused wine warehouse. Serignan is probably more famous for the resort of Serignan Plage 5km down the road. Serignan Plage itself is a very nice beach and is very popular with campers (there are around 4-5 campsites here, including a naturist campsite). The influx of holiday-makers really adds to the atmosphere of Serignan town during the summer, as the bars and restaurants swell to accommodate their number.
