La Place de la Comédie - Square of the Opera house
This is now the symbol of Montpellier's dynamic character. With its Opera House, La Comedie, built in 1888 in the same style as the Garnier Opera in Paris, and the statue of the Three Graces, this square, also called The Egg, due to its shape, is the nerve centre of Montpellier. The terraces of the many cafes and restaurants make it a lively place where both students and local residents meet up throughout the day.
La Faculté de Médecine - The Faculty of Medicine
Montpellier has the oldest, still active, school of medicine in the western world (dates from 1220).
La Cathédrale Saint Pierre - Cathedral of Saint Pierre
Adjoining the faculty of Medicine, Saint Pierre's Cathedral was built as a church in 1364 at the wish of Pope Urbain V, a former Montpellier student, later to become in 1536 a cathedral. Its two monumental pillars which support the canopied porch, characteristic of the southern Gothic style, are very impressive and gives to the monument the effect of a medieval fortress.
La place Royale du Peyrou - the Royal square of Peyrou
These French-style gardens were designed in the 18th century around an immense statue of Louis XIV facing the majestic Arc de Triomphe (Triumphal Arch). An elegant water tower, collects the waters of the Saint Clement Aquaduct called "Les Arceaux" (the Arches) and inspired by the famous Roman "Pont du Gard". This high point offers a wonderful panoramic view of the north of the town and the Cevennes mountains which seem to be within arm's reach.
Le Jardin des Plantes - the Botanical Garden
Designated among the most prestigious botanical gardens in the world, the Botanical Garden was created by Richer de Belleval in 1593 at the request of Henri IV. It is the oldest garden in France.
This modern area of the town, built in the neo-classic style, revisited by the Catalan architect Ricardo Boffill, comprises living accommodation, offices and a vast shopping mall called Le Polygone. Explore it on foot or by tram.
Along the river Lez Lined with trees and enhanced by pedestrian bridges, the riverbanks offer an ideal place for promenades or bike rides. New sought after residential districts of Lironde or Port Marianne are booming along this precious green space created by the Lez river and its amenities
The "folies" of Montpellier
In the 18th century, a period of great prosperity, Montpellier hosted all the great administrative bodies (States of Languedoc, Court of the Accounts, Stock Exchange…). This allowed the nobility and gentry to build great town houses in Montpellier and what amounted to small chateaux in the surrounding areas: set in wooded gardens, these 'follies' competed with each other in refinement and architectural style. Usually rectangular in shape, the follies tended to be built along austere lines and embellished with carvings. From the house, gardens extended in terraces, adorned with statues and pools. The most original is the chateau de Flaugergues, but also worth seeing are the Mogère and Mosson chateaux.
