Strolling on the Place de la Comédie
The place de la Comédie, Montpellier’s iconic heart, is the top place to visit. Once known as the Place de l’Oeuf (Egg Square) because of its oval shape, it is one of the largest pedestrian precincts in Europe and is dominated by the imposing Opéra Comédie. In the centre, the ‘Three Graces’ stand proudly, a fountain and statue built in 1773.
Visiting the Musée Fabre de Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole
This museum is considered to be one of the finest Fine Arts Museums in Europe – its ancient and modern architecture makes it quite exceptional. It houses European works from the Renaissance to the present day and has a wing devoted exclusively to contemporary artist, Pierre Soulages.
