The Medical college next door and its courtyard, when open, also make for some great photo opportunities.The labyrinthine streets around the Cathedral make for an exciting tour around the most curious parts of Montpellier. Lots of high quality gift shops and small cafes reside in this area, but the building itself is imposing and strikingly bare. If you are visiting... More

An amazing set of stained glass windows in a spectacular space, though the stonework is quite simple and austere by comparison with many cathedrals. Not so sure about the porch, which to me looks a little bizarre and out of proportion with the rest of the structure. Has the rather sombre atmosphere of French Catholic churches, but well worth a...

It is very impressive even when you see the photos of Cathedrale St-Pierre, imagine the feeling to stand before its entrance. Very close to the city center, you should definitely visit it. Very useful during a rainy day. Nowadays, the Faculty of Medicine is situated within this Cathedrale (you can see the signs).

We went for a visit in May and there was something on with the children so we had to wait outside for it to finish. They let us in and it was worth the wait. What a lovely church and seeing all the families there celebrating was very special.

I really came here to rest my tired feet and for some time away from the sun, after a long walk around the city. I was pleasantly surprised by this well maintained building. It is the seat of the archbishops of Montpellier and whilst not as ornate as some other great cathedrals around France it has a beautifully simple Medieval... More

A much rebuilt cathedral with loud bells and a fabulous witches-hat portico! Cool on a hot day, too.

The cathedral, tucked out of the way in the historic city center, is distinguished by its twin towers rising above the surrounding buildings. It has a massive porch supported by two huge columns topped with Gothic towers, but the entrance is by a small door down the side of the building and where you can still see the marks of... More

I'm not sure how busy it can get at the Cathedrale, when we went we had it all to ourselves! It is a huge and breathtaking place, quite different to many other cathedrales I have visited. Beautiful stained glass, very peaceful, fantastic organ...would definately recommend.

This medieval Catholic cathedral was built in the 12th century as a church and elevated to cathedral status in the 16th. It has to gigantic columns outside the west door and, unusually for a building of this type has very small windows which makes the interior very cool and the world is left at the door. There is a beautiful... More
