The Midi-Pyrenees and Languedoc-Roussillon Sights

Cathédrale St-Pierre

  • Pl. St-Pierre
  • Montpellier
  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

After taking in the broad vistas of the promenade de Peyrou, cross over into the Vieille Ville and wander its maze of narrow streets full of pretty shops and intimate restaurants. At the northern edge of the Vieille Ville, visit this imposing cathedral. Its fantastical 14th-century entry porch alone warrants the detour: two cone-top towers—some five stories high—flank the main portal and support a groin-vaulted shelter. The interior, despite 18th-century reconstruction, maintains the formal simplicity of its 14th-century origins.
