The architect of the consular palace
The consular palace of Sète was built by the famous Parisian architect Adolphe Dervaux. An architect influenced by the Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements, he is also known for the construction of the Rouen Rive Droite station, the old Biarritz station as well as the renovation of certain districts of Perpignan in the 1930s. But the most famous creation of Adolphe Dervaux is undoubtedly that of the famous candelabras of the Parisian metro in 1920. The consular palace of Sète is a mixture between the Art Deco and Moorish revival styles with its minaret, symbolizing the maritime links between Sète and Algeria and Tunisia.
