Porte du Peyrou, the statue of Louis XIV on horseback overlooking the promenade, the water tower and aqueduct framing the view… What a sight!
Le Peyrou is a royal square and belvedere with all-round views.
A fantastic statue of Louis XIV on horseback stands in the middle, made by the architect Jean Giral in 1774.
Whether you walk, ride a bike, push a pram or scoot on a scooter in Parc du Peyrou, you can venture up to the aqueduct’s arches to soak up stunning views of Montpellier and Pic St-Loup in the distance.
It’s a favourite haunt among locals and the perfect place for a picnic with friends. It’s a golden opportunity to unwind in front of a romantic sunset. If you’re here on Sunday morning then you can pick up a bargain at the flea market.
