La Grande Motte is known and set appart for its
buildings in the shape of pyramids made by the architect
Jean Balladur. They are astonishing and weather you like
them or not you will remember them for sure! Born in the
end of the sixties, it could exist thanks to the removal
of mosquitos of the grounds surronding it. It owes its
name to the wine field which existed before the city.
Many green areas were created in and around the city.

Motte is inhabited all the year by of Héraultais.
