If you are looking to immerse yourself in the world of contemporary art, head to AD Galerie and be prepared to be amazed by the great artworks on display.

St. Pierre Cathedral

Located close to the historic city center, the exterior of Saint Pierre Cathedral is distinguished by its twin towers rising above the surrounding buildings. The current entrance is by the unassuming doorway in rue du Cardinal Cabrières, next to which one can still distinguish the marks of shots fired by Royalist troops in 1815. Worth noting is the restoration of 19th-century stained glass windows and paintings, most notably the demise of Simon le Magicien by Sébastien Bourbon (1621).

Musée d'Anatomie

The anatomical conservatory was created in 1794 within the oldest medical faculty in France. It houses an important collection of rare specimens, monstrosities and dissected anatomical organs which make it a real house of horror for the uninitiated. You can also visit the surgical theater built in 1806 and wander around the vast premises of the medical faculty on the steps of François Rabelais. The statue of this great 16th-century writer, author of Gargantua, and famous doctor, is found in the nearby botanical gardens.

Musée Fabre

The Musée Fabre is housed in an old high school that once was a former Jesuit college during the 15th and 16th centuries. Today the museum displays paintings of major European artists and schools of the 15th-18th Centuries, including Ingres, Véronèse, Courbet and Brueghel. There is a major collection of the works of Bazille, a painter from Montpellier whose rich family lived in a large townhouse on the rue Jean Moulin and whose fortune supported other painters including Monet (1840-1926). There are also sculptures, ceramics and contemporary works by Degas and Nicolas de Staël (1914-1955).

Pavillon Populaire

The Pavillon Populaire is a photography art gallery that exhibits works of well-known artists both national and international. Three exhibitions are held annually. Some of the famous artists that exhibit their work are Brassai, Bernard Plossu Patrick Tosani or Tuggener. Besides the photographs, the museum also houses a great collection of sculptures and contemporary art. This photographic gallery functions under the direction of Gilles Mora, and it's easy to appreciate his keen eye for great artworks.

Place de la Comédie

Located in the historic city center, this immense, pedestrianized square is the heart and soul of Montpellier. Deriving its name from the first theater built in the 18th Century on the site of what is now the Opéra, this expansive square is the site of major open-air shows and daily street entertainment. At the center of the square, beneath the handsome facades of the surrounding 19th-century buildings, is the fountain of the Three Graces.
