Tucked away in the tight streets of old Montpellier this gothic cathedral looks impressive from outside but is pretty sparse inside. The organ was playing the day we visited but the inside of the cathedral itself is not as grand as many others in France. More a place of prayer than a tourist site.

This cathedral in the old historic part of Montpellier is truely monstrous. Large, bland and imposing from the outside. Absolutely huge vaulted ceiling inside. Oppressive religous momument. Quite impressive stained glass windows, but very gloomy. One can not, unfortunately, go up the bell towers.

This is an unbelievable piece of architecture!. On one side is a couple of bars and restaurants, ideal for sitting an soaking up its beauty, on the other side is a wonderful park.

This is a pretty big and beautiful church and the area around it is nice, close to the botanical garden and the Peyrou.

I walked by this cathedrale by chance so I was not disappointed it was closed. It is worth a short walking detour but I wouldn't drive across France to see it

The cathedral offers impressive if somewhat unusual sight from the outside. Disappointing that the internal was not open to the public unlike most churches and cathedrals.
