The Midi-Pyrenees and Languedoc-Roussillon Sights

Updated 04/08/2014

Fodor's Review

At the far-east end of the city loop, Montpellier seems to transform itself into a futuristic city, all in one smooth, low-slung postmodern style. This is the Antigone district, the result of city planners' efforts (and local industries' commitment) to pull Montpellier up out of its economic doldrums. It worked. This ideal neighborhood, designed by the Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill, covers 100-plus acres with plazas, esplanades, shops, restaurants, and low-income housing constructed out of stone-color, pre-stressed concrete.

Hôtel de Region. Be sure to visit Place du Nombre d'Or—symmetrically composed of curves—and the long vista that stretches down a mall of cypress trees to the glass-fronted Hôtel de Region. Rue de Pompegnane, 34000.
