Tourist Information


Montpellier and its suburbs have about 420,000 inhabitants. It is the capital and the largest city of the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Montpellier was founded in 985 and since then has continuously developed on a beautiful site, facing the Mediterranean sea to the south and backed to the north by the mountains of the Massif Central (Les Cévennes). Formed by its long history, Montpellier offers two faces: the old town, small enough to walk around through the narrow streets often lined with 18th century mansions or older buildings and the modern town, dynamic and developing as emphasized by the impressive building complex of Antigone, created by the Spanish born architect, Ricardo Bofill. Montpellier is also a "University city" with 70,000 students spread over 11 disciplines. Research plays a major role in biology, medicine, engineering, chemistry, agronomy, computer sciences, etc... Finally, Montpellier is a perfect place for enjoyable entertainment with hundreds of fine restaurants and bars (often outdoors in summer), movie theatres, opera, etc.. There are also a great Olympic indoor swimming pool and a brand ice-skating park in the city as well as many places for an unforgettable jog like along the River Lez (for harden runners, a round trip to the seaside is about 20 km). Finally the seaside (typical village being Palavas) is only 10 km away and can be reached by using city buses (30 min trip).
