Montpellier

Located 37 km from the hotel, Montpellier is a must-visit during your stay in the Occitanie region!  Take a stroll around the town, also known as "Ecusson" (because its shape resembles an escutcheon) and discover its remarkable historic monuments such as Saint-Pierre Cathedral, Place de la Comédie, the Corum and Place Royale du Peyrou where Montpellier's Arc de Triomphe stands (17th century).

 

 

 

Our favourites:

Musée Fabre in Montpellier is one of the largest beaux-arts museums in France.  Located in Hôtel de Massilian overlooking the Esplanade, the museum is home to impressive collections of art from the 15th to 18th centuries, sculptures and decorative art (Véronèse, Poussin, Rubens, Zurbaran, Delacroix, Courbet, Soulages, Houdon, Barry Richier…).

Saint-Pierre Cathedral, the largest church in Languedoc-Roussillon, is flanked by two imposing towers and an impressive porch.  Built on the foundations of an ancient 14th century chapel by Pope Urban V, the church became a cathedral in 1536.

Saint Clément Aquaduct, also  known as Arceaux aquaduct (arches) can be distinguished by its double layer of arches extended over 800 metres, inspired by Roman architecture.  It was built in the 18th century to provide spring water to the town.  The beautiful piece of engineering was designed by Henri Pitot and resembles the aquaduct of Pont du Gard.  Good to know: a market takes place at the foot of the aquaduct every Tuesday and Saturday morning.
