  • Many think that we see "the towers" St Pierre when it comes to Montpellier. NO! It is the Bell Tower of the Church St Anne built on a high point of the city, unlike St Pierre, which is located in a bowl. But its position next to the College of medicine and not far from the garden plants make his visit. I won't talk of the great history of this memorable place, but anecdotes and the resistance fighters that sent radio messages hidden in the height of the towers during the second world war, or the passing of the head of State as Charles de Gaulle, and closer to us the funeral of Georges Frêche on his forecourt you. I stop here my comments, Miss the place, but what is written here is done by a Montpellier real who loves his city. Tourists, do not hesitate to come and visit this beautiful Cathedral, not to mention the city.
