Some information about Montpellier

At the heart of the Mediterranean arc, Montpellier is the capital of the department of Herault and the Languedoc-Roussillon region. The South of France city, built by well-knowninternational architects, is rich of its 1000 years of historical treasures. For instance, Montpellier mothers the oldest (XIVth century) Medical University of the Western world still in operation.

The historical centre, l’Ecusson, is famous for its beautiful mansions and medieval streets. Among the must-see places in Montpellier also feature the Place de la Comédie, one of the largest pedestrian areas in Europe, the Musée Fabre renowned for its rich art collections, the triumphal arch built in 1692, the Peyrou promenade, the Antigone district designed by Ricardo Bofill in the 1980s, the Lez River shores and the Montpellier zoo.

150km away from Marseille, at the crossroads of Spain and Italy, the city of Montpellier is served by an international airport 8km from the city center and a train station 100m from the Place de la Comédie. A friendly and welcoming city, sitting between the sea and mountains, and gifted with a rich arts and culinary tradition, Montpellier has everything to turn this workshop into an unforgettable event.
