In Agde, the Montmorency look after the safety of the city. In return, Henry I of Montmorency demanded the presence of a military governor in the fortress of Brescou and in the city walls. He affirmed his Catholic faith when the Benedictines were replaced by the Capuchins in the monastery. He built a church and enlarged the Chapel with a donation of 16,000 pounds. He revived the Marian cult and processions in this place: under his impetus, the site will host 172 processions and 50,000 people each year. He will leave his post in 1593 but will continue have stays in Agde especially in Notre Dame Du Grau, moreover he would be buried in this church.
