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).

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.

Château de Flaugergues

This historic building is located three kilometers (one mile) east of the city center. Once a country house, this family property now finds itself and its surrounding parks and vineyards entirely swallowed by the city. The Château de Flaugergues which dates from the 17th Century and its collection of 17th and 18th-century furnishings and art (including a large collection of optical instruments) can be visited throughout the year (though the timings differ). Outside the house one can admire the gardens à la française as well as the château's own vineyards (Coteaux de la Méjanelle) whose wines can be tasted and bought on site.

Esplanade Charles-De-Gaulle

This wide promenade extends from the Place de la Comédie up to the rose-colored Corum building. Trees and fountains welcome those seeking to escape the summer heat or bustle of the city center. The far end of the esplanade looks out across the northern district of the city and the stairs leading up to the roof of the Corum offer an even wider panorama. On the west side of the esplanade is the Musée Fabre while to the east is the museum's pavilion and the Champ de Mars gardens - within this space are several contemporary statues (notably Baldini's Le Vent) as well as classical ones. The mini-train and horse-drawn carriages also use the esplanade as their point of departure for tours of the city.

Montpellier Zoological Park

Parc Zoologique de Montpellier functions as the home of 100 different indigenous and exotic species. No tiny or concrete cages are to be seen and the spacious enclosures and vegetation allow the animals some privacy. A little patience is amply rewarded by the possibility of seeing zebra, antelope, camels and even cheetahs in a habitat of woodland and shrubs. With 9 kilometers (5 miles) of paths to explore and several picnic sites, the zoo allows a relaxing yet active and educational visit. The Parc Zoologique de Montpellier is also home to a restaurant where you can retire to when your wildlife expeditions have left you famished.

Planet Ocean Montpellier

Established in December 2007, Planet Ocean Montpellier is a part of the Odysseum. An Aquarium (Mare Nostrum) cum planetarium (Galileo Planetarium), Planet Ocean Montpellier boasts of being home to over 400 species of aquatic life and spaces for the exploration of the galaxy. Other facilities here include interactive displays, a restaurant and a cafe.
