One of the largest squares in Europe, it includes historic buildings such as the opera house as well as restaurants, cafes… It is certainly the busiest place in Montpellier. You can easily spend a few hours roaming around this beautiful square.
“Hey! I’ll meet you at Place de la Comédie”. Place de la Comédie is right in the centre of Montpellier, a central hub for public transport, and thus a meeting point for everyone. There are lots of restaurants and stores here which allow you to spend your whole day with your friends and family. It is an oval plaza surrounded by beautiful 19th-century buildings, including the opera house.
Chilling in the outdoor area of any restaurant, you can see the fountain of the Three Graces. The statue on the fountain depicts the three goddesses in Greek mythology, sitting on a hill surrounded by little angels.
The square is over 250 years old and has always been an integral part of life in the city because it’s close to many banks, and government buildings. Locals have even nicknamed it “L’Oeuf Square (Egg Square)” because of its shape. If you can't resist shopping malls, you can cross the Place de la Comédie to get to Polygone where you can find the usual big brands which frequent every city centre.
