4.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web
Cathedrale St-Pierre is an incomplete Roman Catholic cathedral, widely considered one of the most daring achievements of Gothic architecture. Inside, you study ornate stone carvings, elaborate stained glass windows, and the oldest fully functioning mechanical clock in Europe. A sophisticated astronomical clock with moving figures was added in the 19th century.

  • The exterior is austere and almost foreboding, but the interior is well worth the visit. It is quite beautiful, and the organ is massive. 
  • We visited on a Sunday afternoon in August and it was closed! No notices or information. Visually stunning against a blue sky but disappointing not to be able to go inside. 
  • Although Gothic style, its appearance reminds of the novel. In addition, its towers evoke the fortress it was, including the massive porch preceded two turrets of the 14th century. Inside, a magnificent carved stoup throne facing the organ of 1778. To admire the building, entering the Faculty of medicine and down in the courtyard. In addition, during the heritage days, possibility to climb the clock tower to enjoy a magnificent view over Montpellier and the Mediterranean coast.
