Montpellier Cathedral, Montpellier (must see)

Montpellier Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Montpellier) is a Roman Catholic cathedral and a national monument of France, located in the town of Montpellier. It is the seat of the archbishops, previously the bishops, of Montpellier. Originally attached to the monastery of Saint-Benoît (founded in 1364), the church was elevated to the status of cathedral in 1536, when the sea of Maguelonne became part of Montpellier. It suffered extensive damage during the Wars of Religion between Catholics and Protestants in the 16th century, and was subsequently rebuilt in the 17th century.
