OVERVIEW
Montpellier is France’s 8th largest city, located in the warm south.
The city is rich of culture and was in the past a crossroad of several historical periods.
You must stroll on the unique pedestrian Montpellier's streets.



UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

The faculty of medecine of Montpellier, founded in 1220, is the oldest one of Europe who is still in activity. The faculty has a museum of Anatomy - a real must see, especially for medical students.  

There are several hospitals in Montpellier such as Lapeyronie, Arnaud de Villeneuve, Gui de Chauliac, St Eloi...

The new building of the faculty, which modern architecture is quite a contrast to the old one from 1220 and which objective is to make it the european most advanced faculty, has opened in July 2017 and makes it both the city with the oldest and the most recent university in Europe.
