Opera Comédie

The center of the Place de la Comédie is the Opera Comédie, a neoclassical opera house built in the 19th century.

Place de la Comédie

Montpellier’s most popular square, Place de la Comédie, is an ideal spot for those who want to sip on a glass of wine or a coffee and people watch. The square’s numerous cafes and bistros

draw many locals and tourists.

Musée Fabre

A short distance from the Place de la Comédie is the Musée Fabre, considered the city’s most important art museum. Its collection includes works by such masters as Rubens and Delacroix and the museum building, consisting of an old Jesuit college and a 17th century hotel, is worth the visit for its unusual architecture.

Saint Clément Aqueduct

Constructed in the 18th century, Montpellier's aqueduct was originally built to carry water to the city from the Saint Clément spring. It now supplies water to Montpellier's many fountains.
