Visit Place de la Comédie, a busy focal point in the city and the gateway to the historic centre. The square is home to the National Opera House and is one of the biggest pedestrian-only areas in Europe. Here you can also see the Three Graces fountain, a symbol of the city. The square is lined with 19th century buildings, with café terraces and restaurants. In the evening, it is seen at its best with attractive lighting.
St-Pierre Cathedral is in the Ecusson district, the historic centre of Montpellier. It is the only medieval church in the city to have survived the Wars of Religion. The cathedral also symbolises Southern French Gothic style. It is the city's most important Gothic monument. If you don't have time for a longer visit, make sure you see the porch with its impressive canopy.
The Promenade du Peyrou is one of the locals' favourite spots. There is a secondhand market here every Sunday morning. The esplanade covers over 4 hectares and is listed as a Historic Monument. From the terraces, you can see the Cévennes region and the Pyrenees.
Close by Place de la Comédie, the Fabre Museum is the city's main art museum and one of the most important Provençal museums in France. It was founded in 1928, after Baron Fabre's collections were donated to the city four years earlier. The museum has the "Musée de France" label. Here you can see a collection of European art and faience, as well as paintings by some of the great masters of France and Europe.
