Place Jean Jaures: the place to be

a must

Much more than a prominent square in the urban configuration, it is an absolute must for the people of Montpellier, who gather there on all kinds of occasions.

The setting? A pretty square, bordered by Melia trees, where colourful umbrellas overlap in summer and even winter never quite manages to empty its terraces. The atmosphere? Joyous, free, warm and festive a fine description of the South of France in fact… During the day, you can choose where you sit according to the orientation of the sun in order to read while drinking a coffee, or you can collapse there to regain your strength after a hectic shopping spree in the adjoining streets of la Loge and lAiguillerie.

At night, Montpellier youth make this site and its popular cafés the starting point for many a night out. On game nights you can sing along with the fans of the teams of your choice, or make friends with the locals.
