I just love walking through here. There are a few excellent hotels near here, I always stay in this part of Montpellier & walk through here several times a day & never get bored. There are cafe/bar's aplenty,some small shops. It has a lovely atmosphere & is en route to the large shopping centre, what's not to love about that?.

I had time to fill before my train left Montpellier so I walked down to this area from Place de la Comedie. It is an easy walk to the river and back through Antigone which has impressive architecture, lovely fountains and statues, and lots of benches to sit and enjoy a sunny day.

This is part of a large 1980s office and residential district which, at the time, was considered rather special. Designed by Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill in a Post Modern style throughout with oversized 'classical' elevations and proportions. It has become a bit of a back water and not totally successful (as with many modern new districts) but worth a visit... More

This is a lovely part of Montpellier and a great contrast to the old town. A few restaurants and bars. Quiet with lots of space and walks by the canal.

This is a pedestrian area with some cafes and a few shops, it is generally quiet and peaceful and pleasant to stroll through. Some aspects of it look quite deserted and neglected and the stone finish of the buildings is starting to get grimy and in a state of disrepair. It reminded me of a lighter bigger tricorn, for those... More

We fund this area to be a nice place for a stroll and get out of the traffic. The park area with the pond is very nice also.

Although I am a fan of architecture this was disappointing, as it was poorly finished and steps were showing signs of poor workmanship . This structure is now home to locals as they are all flats. A bit boring if I'm honest
