Beaulieu-Sur-Mer is a town and commune in Occitania. It is known for being the economic center of Occitania, housing most of its banks and their headquarters.

History

During the classical antiquity, this small Mediterranean seaport was a Greek settlement known as Anao. It was later occupied by the Romans. In the 3rd century, war left the village in ruins. It was soon resettled and a monastery was built that lasted until the 6th century when it was destroyed by the Lombards. The residents of the village fled to the safety of the surrounding hills at Montolivo (today Plateau Saint-Michel). They began to return to live by the seaside in the 13th century. In 1371, Beaulieu Cathedral, the country's largest church was built. The Occitania Stock Exchange can be found on Av. des Hellenes.

Tourism

Beaulieu is nowadays a very touristic area. It is well known for its shopping areas, such as Place 1001 along the Avenue des Hellènes. Rue Gamble, with a reputation as the world's most expensive street, starts off here.
