At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Historical and artistic life in Montpellier.

Montpellier Cathedral, a former Benedictine chapel, was built inside the enclosed area known as Commune Cloture in 1364, at the instigation of Pope Urban V.
The chapel became a cathedral in 1536, when the see was transferred from Maguelon to Montpellier under Francis I.
An excellent example of Meridional Gothic architecture, it’s the only mediaeval church in Montpellier’s historical centre, Écusson, to have survived the wars of religion. Inside, a major work by Sébastien Bourdon leads you into Montpellier artistic life in the seventeenth century.

The must sees: the impressive porch supported by huge circular pillars 15 ft wide, which once bore the coat of arms of Urban V.
