An emblematic city of the south, with multiple facets, rich in historic and contemporary treasures, Montpellier represents an exceptional destination, full of character, at the heart of the Mediterranean arc
The city’s medieval origins are visible from the charming narrow streets in the centre, the faculty of medicine, the royal gardens of Le Peyrou and other marvels which attract the curious from all over the world. But it is also a resolutely modern metropolis, open to science, contemporary culture and leisure activities
Leading names in contemporary design and architecture have contributed to forging the city’s identity: Zaha Hadid (the first female architect to be awarded the Pritzker Prize, the most prestigious international award for architecture), Massimiliano Fuksas, Rudy Ricciotti, Ricardo Bofill, Jean Nouvel
Montpellier has always been a crossing place where people enjoy its lively, youthful and dynamic atmosphere, thanks to the warm climate, and the pedestrianised, verdant and spacious city centre, the inviting boutiques and meeting points.
It is also a land of encounters, of passion, of sharing, where, nestling between the sea and vineyards, you are sure to delight in the diversity of local produce and age-old traditions
Welcome to the heart of Montpellier and the Mediterranean arc!
