Montpellier Pt 4 : Around the City

Did a lot of walking around Montpellier and since it's summer, it's scorching hot for me. Not that I have a choice, but if I have one, I would prefer a cool one. However, since it's not humid and it's about 20 deg C, I can't complain much.

The oldest botanical garden in France, the Jardin des Plantes in Montpellier. I didn't do justice to the garden because I didn't really go inside and have a look at the garden. It's initially built since it's quite near to the university so I guess it's really for medical purpose. And Montpellier is famous for its university as well, the first medical university if I remember correctly.

The disproportionate 15th century Cathedral St. Pierre next to the Jardin des Plantes.

It's the Arc de Triomphe a realtively smaller one compared to the one in Paris.
