The part of the city that surrounds this massive Cathedral is very old with cobbled, narrow streets and beautiful, characteristic French houses. The Cathedral itself is fascinating from the outside as its stonework and sheer size is well worth a visit. Unfortunately the Cathedral was closed so we could not see the inside.

Well worth a visit, it's an amazing building a short walk from the centre of town. The architecture is stunning!

The cathedral is impressive on one side of its exterior. That is where the two towers appear. However, it is a usual one otherwise. The interior is not that impressive.

We read about the little courtyard behind the cathedral but that was closed. The inside of the cathedral is nothing special and not really worth the walk to it. The outside is interesting thanks to the massive pillars but also not of jaw breaking beauty.

So I'm not gonna say that this is a "bad" cathedral, but it is easy to get the feeling that this might just be your average of a cathedral as the competition is so hard from other cathedrals in the rest of France. It is well worth a visit if you're in Montpellier, but there's no bells and whistles compared... More

We stumbled across this beautiful cathedral by accident whilst meandering around Montpellier. The external views of pillars and turrets are striking and inside its peaceful with wonderful sculptured stone. Outside there is a nice bar where you can sit in the sun drinking a cool beer and taking in this wonderful view. Put it on your "Must do " list... More
