Situated at the top of the Allées Pierre-Paul Riquet - Béziers' most famous son (search or follow my links for more).
This building and those to the side of it show how wealthy Béziers was at one time (the theatre was built in 1832) due to the wine trade. I was told by a local that the wine trade is in crisis now (don't know why) and the town is becoming run down. Signs of this are pan-handlers every 20m down the main shopping streets and drunks/junkies crashed out on the pavement.
Another local described his town as "dirty", but I must say that whilst the sight of beggars is distressing and I stuck to the touristy places, I found the whole place delightful. I just love the contrast between the splendour in this scene and the forgotten dustyness of the nearby www.gigapan.org/gigapans/74099/
Of course the theatre and this general area is one of the tourist draws. The big draw is the Cathedral and the big view here www.gigapan.org/gigapans/74035/
