The Architecture in Montpellier (Languedoc-Roussillon)
In this city you will find architecture from all the most important architectural epochs in France. Most buildings are Medieval but there are also a lot of majestic buildings from the 19th century. Not long ago the building l'Antigone was build. The building combines old ways of building with a modern look, for instance a triumphal arch has been made with windows of plate glass.
The Bridge Le Pont du Gard (Languedoc-Roussillon)
This aqueduct was a very important Roman water supply that supplied water over a gigantic cliff. The bridge is close to Nîmes and is built with three rows of massive arches on top of each other. You can go over the bridge if you are not scared by gigantic heights.
The Castle La Cité de Carcassonne (Languedoc-Roussillon)
This castle was the home of some of the most resistant French. In fights concerning the Catarrhs they held out in spite of a massive siege. The castle is a little community in itself where the small streets are packed with shops, hotels and restaurants. The castle is illuminated by night and is a very beautiful sight. It is best to enjoy it outside the tourist season where it becomes almost intolerable to walk in the small streets.
The Town Minerve (Languedoc-Roussillon)
The Mountain town Minerve was one of the places the Catarrhs held against the Roman Catholic Church's prosecution. When they finally surrendered the heretics as reward was gathered and burned alive in the local church. The town is placed on a cliff and is only connected to rest of the land by a bridge over a dried out riverbed. Under the mountain the rivers in olden times carved deep caves in the cliff. The caves offer a unique view of Mother Nature's mysterious ways.
