    Rendez-vous at Place de la Comédie in Montpellier

    Built in the 18th century and surrounded with cosy and elegant townhouses, it is closed to its end by the Comédie Opera House, built in 1888.

    In the centre of the square stands the Fountain of the Three Graces and the Egg, drawn on the pavement with a red marble line.

    The square is today entirely pedestrian, and is prolonged by the tree-lined Charles-de-Gaulle Esplanade, a huge open space, and the site of several events.
