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

A lovely panorama.

The people of Montpellier like to meet on the Promenade du Peyrou on the outskirts of the Ecusson (the name given to the historic centre for its shape).

It was planned in order to host the equestrian statue of Louis XIV.

The triumphal arch and the water tower that extends the aqueduct are models of classical architecture.

At the end of the straight avenues, from the water tower platform designed by the architect, Giral, and powered by the Source St. Clement, the views of the water below, the Arceaux quarter and the city's outskirts are breathtaking.
