Absolutely amazing structure

The cathedral stands out as you approach it you feel overpowered by the size and architecture. Set down a small street, just lovely

This enormous church looks like the entrance to a medieval fort at the doorway. We were lucky enough to be there on a Sunday morning when the choir was practicing. The acoustics were amazing. Then the many church bells rang and the sound echoed across the old city streets with an awesome sound. The inside is also gothic, built in... More

The Cathedral a beautiful and historic building in Montpellier. Its organ is one of the highlights as are the stained glass windows. For a visitor, this is a must see.

We walked by on a holiday but did not get to see the interior. Will have to do that next time. I guess it was closed because of a holiday.

Beautifully cleaned recently and the porch is extra-ordinary - but didn't get to see the interior, but certainly worth seeing as is is very unusual architecturally

It is an unusual building from the outside but we happened to pass by on Easter Saturday evening as the vigil mass was in progress so we went in to the mass. The place was in semi darkness and the atmosphere was very solemn, enhanced by the huge roof space and general interior. At the point in the service when... More

Stumbled on the cathedral while walking around Montpelier, very impressed with the interior, which was improved by a singing rehearsal they were to perform there later in the evening with a full concert, we sat down to listen, but they were at the end of their presentation, but what we heard was very inspiring.

I really like to visit places of worship wherever I go in the world so I was keen to see this cathedral. The outside was impressive - big arches stretch out into a relatively small street. The interior was slightly strange (although maybe I went at the wrong time of day). There weren't any lights on so it was fairly... More

My wife and I together with other members of our tour group attended Christmas Day Mass here. It is also worthwhile visiting when there is no service in order to look at the large organ and the side chapels.

My personal favourite among the historic sights in Montpellier is undoubtedly Cathedrale Saint Pierre (Saint Peter). The gothic Church was founded 1364 belonging to the Saint Benoit Monastery, but in 1536 it was elevated to a cathedral when the bishop of Maguelone transferred to Montpellier. The Cathedral was heavily damaged during the Wars of Religion and needed to be rebuilt... More
