  • Fabre Museum

    Fabre Museum

    The Fabre Museum, created thanks to the painter François-Xavier Fabre, took over a Massilian townhouse in 1828, in the Ecusson district in Montpellier, just on the edge of the esplanade.

    Since then, many donations have increased the collection. They cover European production from the Renaissance to the present day: Nordic art, French 17th century, romanticism, realism, academism and impressionism. The main artistic movements are all represented here.

    The large prints and drawings collection is exhibited on rotation over two rooms.
    Recent refurbishments have provided the 20th century works, including those of Pierre Soulages, with a new pavilion which boasts a remarkable facade. This refurbishment has also enabled the Fabre Museum to host temporary exhibitions on an international scale.

  • Museum of Vieux Montpellier

    Museum of Vieux Montpellier

    On the 1st floor, the Museum of Vieux Montpellier boasts an astonishing collection of antique plates and engravings which trace the urban evolution of the city. Visitors can also admire a number of period objects and pieces of furniture (armoires, procession batons...).

    The most beautiful object of all is undoubtedly the Black Madonna, a 13th century polychrome statuette depicting the Virgin and child. The elegant beauty of her features and her tender expression add emotion to this sculpture.

    On the 2nd floor, the Fougau Museum, dedicated to art and to popular traditions, presents a fascinating range of 19th century objects and items of traditional dress.

  • Place de la Comédie

    Place de la Comédie

    The place de la Comédie links the historic centre of Montpellier and the more recent Antigone district, making the square a focal point in the city.

    The square is composed of majestic buildings in the classical style such as the imposing Opéra-Comédie. The huge pedestrianised square is the venue for many events and entertainments (including the Christmas market and street theatre). There are countless cafés and restaurants with the terraces affording a relaxing moment of respite during your walking tour of Montpellier.

    The Fountain of the Three Graces created by the sculptor Antoine in 1797 is an added charm in this important city landmark.

  • Zoo Park in Montpellier - Parc zoologique de Montpellier

    Zoo Park in Montpellier - Parc zoologique de Montpellier

    North of Montpellier, in the thick Mediterranean scrubland vegetation, shaded by large pines, is the Lunaret zoological park, home to hundreds of animals representing nearly one hundred species in a wildlife reserve of over 80 hectares of protected land.

    This zoo is in the old domaine de la Valette, which was donated to the town of Montpellier in 1910 by Henri de Lunaret. Works began in 1963, and one year later the zebras were the first species to inhabit the zoo. A special attraction here is the lemur colony. However you can also see many other animals from all over the world, such as the Atlas lion, the red kangaroo or the Somali wild ass.
