Montpellier

Capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon, lying virtually on the Mediterranean coast, Montpellier has for centuries been a city where different cultures meet.

Today, it is a dynamic economy in which art and science go hand in hand with advanced technology and the superb Mediterranean life-style.

Part of the great European Medieval City tradition, open to the world, linked as much to the Mediterranean as to northern Europe, it is forever welcoming and assimilating new ideas, a melting pot of all that is best in today's civilisation.

A city in which medicine has been a vocation since the XIth C, with the oldest, existing medical faculty in the West. The fine reputation of its Law and Arts Faculties makes it one of France's foremost university cities.

Today, Montpellier is both a city dedicated to building a new Europe, and one of the southern Europe's main metropolies.
