The Place de la Comédie, the beating heart of Montpellier


The square in the centre of Montpellier

Close to the station area and on the outskirts of the medieval Écusson, the Place de la Comédie is the meeting place for all Montpellier residents. For visitors, it is also an ideal starting point for exploring the historic centre. With its 21,000 square metres, the square, also known as the "Place de l'œuf" because of its oval shape, is now one of the largest pedestrian areas in Europe.


A cultural venue with remarkable architecture

The square, which takes its name from the municipal theatre l'Opéra de la Comédie, has always played a major role in local cultural life. In the 19th century, it was both a place of pleasure and performance for the Montpellier bourgeoisie, and a place of business with the "wine market" organised in the large cafés of the time that adorned the square: the "Grand Café de France" and "Le Grand Café de Montpellier" located at the corner of the rue du Royal Hôtel. From the doors of the establishment to the Place de la Comédie, the monumental expression of the Haussmann buildings invites you to contemplate. During their walk, the most attentive will appreciate the sculpted pediment of the current Gaumont cinema, testifying to the former wine wealth of the city.

The activities

A coffee on the terrace, an afternoon of shopping, a lunch in the sun or a lively afterwork. The Place de la Comédie in Montpellier is a place of good cheer: you can eat, stroll around, meet up with family or friends. Happiness is just a few steps away during your stay at the hotel.
