We have not been into Montpellier since we arrived in the south of France. We have been very busy preparing and celebrating Christmas. On the 26the December, we had a friend arriving from Geneva, who will be staying to celebrate the New Year with us. We had to drive into Montpellier; so, we had a chance to walk around the city and have lunch before going to the train station.

We were very lucky with the weather, blue skies but very cold.

The entrance to the main city park. Its almost like le jardin de Tuileries in Paris; with its gravel walk paths, large statues, water fountains and huge old trees.

One of the main entrance into the old city. To me, it looks like a mini replica of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

The beautiful palace de justice.

One of the main boulevards in leading to the old city.

One of the plenty of gothic churches in the center of the city.

It was very quiet in the old city, during our walk. Of course the outdoor terrace for the cafes were empty due to the cold. Most of the people are in Place de Comedie.

We are heading now to the restaurant for lunch. We read very good things about a very good little bistro in the old city.
