My lovely Montpellier

Absolutely charming, the Montpellier city center 
is called Escutcheon because of its form.  
It is a maze of streets, some tiny, dating from the Middle Ages, 
the golden age of the city. 
The XIXth century wanted to rehabilitate all, in the Haussmannian Paris style. But foundations and stone walls remained in place, simply recoated to be more fashion.

Must to be visit !

The elegant Haussmann style with its tall windows and wrought iron balconies

 The foundations are from the Middle Ages

 Hidden roses, also from the Middle Ages

Nod to My Lovely Versailles, 
with the triumphal arch built in honor of Louis XIV.

Courtyard of a renovated mansion in Haussmann style 
as you would see in Paris.
