  • very interesting to discover this garden which has spared the evolution of medicine in Montpellier. a rewarding and fun ride.

  • The Park, in the city center, 300 meters from the Saint Pierre Cathedral, is both very large and very beautiful. This garden is laid out for several centuries and his conservatives were able to renovate it all leaving him this special charm of a garden of botanical discovery and walking area in the multiple point of view. Check out for a family walk, kids love.

  • This historic garden, created once with med school, not only (as the name suggests) presents and maintains a multitude of sometimes rare as well as many species of trees, but still offers a place to stroll and amazingly quiet for being located in the heart of the city, but enough below to not be reached by the traffic noise or other. It is not surprising that several writers, sensitive as everything everyone in the special charm of this place, have felt the need to devote a few beautiful pages. That's the Montpellier we love.
