I used to study there for some years. I always go back there once or twice a year. Very very beautiful cathedral next to the first university of medecine in Europe. Highly recommended to visit!

They have organ concerts here in the summer on Saturday evenings. It's difficult to photograph this cathedral because it is so big!

I was here on a Sunday, passing to Barcelona. Very nice building. Unfortunately, only from the outside because the cathedral is opened at the time of the mass! For sure I will not come here again, after I was treated by the "locals" - very rude people live here.

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
