Here also begins the great Christmas market that has nothing to envy to the markets of German cities, we even found the mulled wine or mulled wine, more typical of Central Europe of a Mediterranean city, nor can miss the crepes, waffles and all sorts of delicacies. To take a warm onion soup, the most delicious soup I've ever had to stick with a chocolate crepe black to cointreau ... ummmm.El Christmas market extends across the broad Esplanade Charles de Gaulle to the Opera Berlioz, the other city Opera, separated only 400 meters from the first demonstrating the strong taste for the spectacle of montpellerienses.

Of course the best way to see it and enjoy it is by foot and wide pedestrian zone makes it easy. We headed towards the center, known as l'Ecusson similar in form to a shield. In fact, his profile draws a sort of pentagon and its edges are boulevards that take the place of the old murallas.Dejándonos guided by its high bell tower of 69 meters that dominates the city, we reached the old church of Santa Ana was built in the nineteenth century in the Gothic style and is now converted into a contemporary art gallery called "Carré Saint-Anne." At that time, the space is occupied by an antique fair and between windows, columns, Gothic arches and the body background, you can find all kinds of antiquities. Church of Sainte Anne. I recommend a small square just near the Arc de Triumph, is called Santa Ana and right there is a church of the same name. This is a very special city for those who love the Mediterranean but do not want to renounce the great pleasure of tranquility that inspires a European city. No doubt, Montpellier answers to these two great reasons and so has a wide range of art, culture, gastronomial, pristine beaches and small villages of great velleza.

I also recommend two of the most pristine beaches in the area known Le Grand Travel Travel et le Petit, the two meet all requirements, a vast area of sand, very low tide you can walk quite a long time to take cover and accessibility. As for the capital, Montpellier, highlights the neighborhood built by Ricardo Bofill, if you like something like this it is to everyone's taste, for me there is too much concrete. Entardo and in the center (after the jam if you go by car and it's summer) we find the true core of the city. You can visit many churches, each one greater than the above, together with a large well-preserved aqueduct and of course the standard of the city, the Comedie. This theater is a great ride Connecta with the old center and other green spaces that link himself with the periphery. It is important to stand on one of the many terraces in the center and breathe the air. Before concluding I must not forget the Faculty of Law, the oldest there and worth visiting. Also, before reaching the aqueduct is one of the most beautiful parks and big city.

Gardens in the Place Royale du Peyrou.

The Arc de Triomphe and thechâteau d'eau (water tower), extend into the water and are models of the classics. Water Tower Place Royale du Peyrou.

De la Place Royale comes the elitist Rue Foch, where lovers of big brands enjoy. Montpellier (Occitan Montpelhièr) is located 10 km from the Mediterranean coast, being the capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon and Hérault department. It is crossed by two rivers: the Lez east, and west Mosson, proceeding from the Latin name monspessulanus, the various meanings attributed as Bald Mountain, Mount Hill, Mount spices or stony hill. The town was founded in the eighth century as a dependent of the nearby nucleus Magalona, although frequent pirate attacks pushed the population to move inland. With the settlement of the counts of Toulouse in the tenth century, became an important commercial center, which made it the capital of the Lordship of Montpellier, first under the dynasty of the Guillermos, and subsequently incorporated into the Crown of Aragon after the wedding Peter II of Aragon and Marie de Montpellier in 1204. After the death of his successor, James I, the lordship passed to the Kingdom of Mallorca until 1349, when King James III sold the Occitania the French King Philip IV to raise money in their war against Pedro IV of Aragon, being since permanently incorporated into the kingdom of France. Montpellier was a stronghold of the Protestant Reformation, whose inhabitants, known as Huguenots, actively fought against the Catholic French crown. To break the reformist pretensions, in 1622 King Louis XIII would take after a siege of nearly two years. During the nineteenth century became an active industrial center, which emphasized the production of textiles, metallurgical and food, of which continues to be an efficient producer. The University of Montpellier is one of the oldest of the French republic, founded in 1220 by Cardinal Conrad and confirmed by a Papal Bull in 1289. The city currently has three universities, among which are the most popular among international students to study languages in France. Population: 257,092 inhabitants.
Saint Clement Aqueduct. The engineer Henri de Launay Pilot was inspired by the Pont du Gard, to build the aqueduct in 1754 San Clemente. This has allowed the arrival of water from the springs of the city of Saint-Clément. Montpellier in French and officially Montpelhièr in Occitan, is a city in southern France, capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon and Hérault department. It is crossed by two rivers: the Lez east, and west Mosson. According to data from 2009 had a population of 257,092 inhabitants, that if you included the metropolitan area totaled 516 360 inhabitants (2008) inhabitants. In 2007 was the eighth largest city in France for its intramural population, is one of the few among cities over 100,000 inhabitants, whose numbers have steadily increased over the last fifty years, during which its population has doubled. The city is an important industrial center, which include textiles, metal products, food, like wine, publishing and chemicals.   An inhabitant of Montpellier walk down the street with his parrot. Although Montpellier is a fairly large city (a quarter of a million people), so that comments on the most interesting things are in the historical district, which is essentially the hill overlooking the surrounding lands. And not only the buildings of high historical interest include beautifully preserved, all the buildings downtown are in fantastic shape regardless of age and usage. It's nice to stroll through the narrow streets of downtown, I definitely think that I will not use public transportation and walk everywhere. Of course, I must admit that today I have lost twice, I look like a tourist just landed. Montpellier is also an important university city (fifty thousand students, ie, the fifth of the population), and agrees that these dates are starting to get all Erasmus to whet the French preparatory courses. All this is coupled with the fact that all of my course we are strangers, of course, so my intention not to speak anything other than French is being constantly frustrated by the communication needs. Of course, the Spanish do not step one, or French or anything. One of the sculptures that decorate the neighborhood of Antigone. Antigone is a newly built neighborhood on the east side of town. The project was undertaken by Bofill, and is therefore considered that the entire neighborhood is a monument that one can not lose. For my part, I disagree. Going from west to east, we left the Place de la Comédie and then entered Antigone, where we find two horrendous buildings: the Triangle and Polygon. These are two shopping centers designed with many claims, so in modernolo plan but are a real punishment to the eye and removed almost want to buy. As the only positive point I can say that would involve many shops near the center. We. Begins a little beyond an area full of houses and restaurants in the prevailing neoclassicism. And when I say that prevails is that it is somewhat exaggerated: not only the Greek-inspired architecture is also the statues and street names. It is a much more pleasant environment than the other part of the neighborhood, but the word "pretentious" no one leaves him while touring this part of town. I must admit that Antigone has very positive things. The first is space, is a neighborhood very open and bright, and sure is nice to live there. The second is the solution you have given to the banks of the river (the Lez marks the eastern boundary of Antigone), have managed to perfectly combine recreational use and proximity to the river with an excellent channel to reach flood when (the cold drop affects the region). In any case, Antigone did not convince me to stay for a drink and went back to the center, where I found a wonderful new location. La Brasserie de l'Aubrac stands above all for his ingenious method of calling the customer: the bands play on the street, at the door of the premises, and not inside. In fact I walked to another room when I heard a siren as a jazz trio led me inevitably run aground on the terrace. The square is very nice, the prices are adequate, and the group that played today was very good. I do not know exactly where, but again I find it sufficient to find the source of such sweet sounds.
One of the sculptures that decorate the park of La Promenade du Peyrou Royale. The city is home to many students, due to the presence of a large university. Try to get to visit the School of Medicine. This was established from the 12th century and is still in place!

This hotel is a folie, ie purchased a house in the eighteenth century by a wealthy family. At the time, the foils were in the field. The urban development has made have finished in the heart of the city. In the eighteenth century, a period of great prosperity, Montpellier housed the main administrative bodies (States of Languedoc, Court of Auditors, the stock market ...). This circumstance allowed the nobility and the bourgeoisie built large town houses in Montpellier, and small manor houses in the neighborhood, "Follies", located in gardens with trees, which competed in refinement and architectural style. Plant houses were generally rectangular, with simple lines adorned with sculptures. The garden is extended from the house in overlapping terraces, adorned with statues and ponds. The most original was the château of Flaugergues, but also worth visiting the chateaux of Mogère and Mosson. His monumental fountains, aqueducts and gardens filled with cool summer mornings.

One place I liked was the "Marché des Arceaux" traveling market located outdoors, under the aqueduct. We visited on Saturday morning, I was impressed by the number of jobs with bio, I fell exhausted in front of the cheese and ate one of the best pies apricots (apricots) in my life. Gardens and fountains next to the Place Max Rouquette located next to the aqueduct. Max Rouquette place (formerly Square Poles) to Montpellier (Hérault) to its original name of the proximity of water, west of Park Peyrou. This place is situated in the extension of the promenade that dates Peyrou the eighteenth century.

A symbol on the ground tells us that the Camino de Santiago also passes through Montpellier. Via Tolosana is the Latin name of one of the four routes in France the Camino de Santiago, the southernmost. Stop by Toulouse (in Spanish and Occitan, Toulouse, hence its name), but its point of departure is meeting and Arles. Facing the country step by step and cross the Pyrenees by Somport. Spanish side of the road goes by the name of Aragon Road to the stage of Puente la Reina. Then it joins the road from Navarre, which is merely the continuation of the other three coming out of France. Hence the way to the city of Compostela is continued under the name of French Road. "There are four routes, leading to Santiago, gather into one in Puente la Reina. One goes through Saint-Gilles (du Gard), Montpellier, Toulouse and Somport. There is no "historical path" as such. There is nothing to testify in some cases the passage of pilgrims. Otherwise the presence of a holy body, often linked to a local pilgrimage, like Saint Lizier or Saint-Bertrand de Comminges, both in the Pyrenees Via Piemonte.

It has a major university, attracting Spanish Erasmus, like Bordeaux or Toulouse. The city has an elegant and lively historic center around a small rise over the rest of the city, between Place de la Comedie and a small park, characteristic of three French cities sights and so scarce in Spain, I guess because the parks are not commercial or aparcables or especulables. Montpellier was an early riser when removing the tram, in 1949, and to no less than 46 years later, there was decided to rentrée. Line 1 was inaugurated in July 2002 between Mosson and Odisseum, with a distance of 15.2 km. served by 28 trams of type TGA Citadis 301, being so successful that it was necessary to acquire, almost immediately, 2 vehicles. Also given the modularity of these vehicles had to be lengthened from 30 to 40.5 meters.

At the entrance of Peyrou find the most representative of these constructions, the Arc de Triomphe. The inhabitants of Montpellier are particularly proud of his bow, as it has over 300 years old, or nearly double that of Paris, and his pride Occitan leads them to try to tease the capital whenever they have occasion. On the back of Peyrou found another Roman-style monument built at the same time even more impressive, Les Arceaux. This is a huge aqueduct made in the image of the Pont du Gard (which I will speak shortly) and was actually used to channel water to the city until 20 years ago. Currently it serves no practical function, but does very nice. The Promenade itself is not too remarkable: trees and flowers, plenty of room to do things, and an equestrian statue of the Sun King in plan Caesar. The good thing about the site is so much space that gives rise to many impromptu public activities, which has become the hub of local perroflautismo. There are always people practicing the bongos or juggling, activities you can participate without a problem. For me, today I spent a great time learning to dance Occitania regional dances in the light of the moon.

Founded in the eleventh century, Montpellier is a young city with respect to its neighboring Nîmes, Narbonne, Béziers and Carcassonne, created in Roman times. Born as an exchange of favors, and the gentleman built a castle Guilhem and a church, he would later call Montpellier. The city grew rapidly in the commercial and academic. In the fourteenth century, became the kingdom of Aragon and the kings of France. At the eighteenth century, the walls were replaced by spacious avenues and squares. Today, the Place de la Comedie, called l'oeuf (egg) is the central scene of the city, a giant pedestrian space where all the looks. At its center, Les Trois Graces (Las Tres Gracias) have their bodies upright, arms bent and provocative smiles. Crowned with a great source of Carrara marble floor. Before the figures were covered when they left the saints in procession. On one side of the square, L'Opéra-Comedie, the nineteenth century, inspired by the Parisian model. In his monumental stairs, took refuge punks and dogs, here are healthy thanks perhaps to the good offices of Saint-Roch, the saint was born in Montpellier in 1340, who cured the sick and the animals provided accompanied by his dog. From the square, to access modernity, must cross the Poligone mall, temple of consumption, a former Protestant cemetery. At the end of an escalator born Antigone, a symbol of progress, the new district, designed by the architect Ricardo Bofill. It is a neoclassical buildings set along a mile, which includes apartments, offices, buildings and public spaces. The man disappears behind all vertical and icy wind. L'Esprit des Lieux, one of the stores where they find any kind of souvenir in Montpellier. In the same streets of stone with elegant mansions of the seventeenth century, sharing space with some modern fads: old clothes or Christian Lacroix, art galleries and salons, bakeries, bars with electronic music. The dark streets lead several times in wooded places, like Place Candolle, or in luxurious avenues such as Fosh. A few meters high in the city, the Peyrou is a small garden of Versailles, three acres, where Louis XIV asserted his royal power, placing in the center a statue with his face and triumphal arch.

It has about 200,000 inhabitants and is, above all, a fantastic city to live, has it all: it is dynamic, warm, full of life, with all the necessary services. Besides being really nice is full of places to discover, whether historical or modern, lots of greenery and a pleasant climate. It is a quiet town but also full of progress that give the crowd of students from all over the world who populate their schools and universities. If you go through the whole center will get a small street, Rue Foch, ending with the courthouse and the triumphal arch that leads to the Promenade du Peyrou, a nice park, but with too much cement for my taste, culminating with the "Château d'eau" and the Roman aqueduct that crosses part of the city. Another park where getting lost is worth the Jardin des Plantes, the oldest botanical park in France created by Henry IV in 1593, for the medical school of the city. Returning to Antigone, we find an ultra modern district with large buildings in a style that blends contemporary architecture with neoclassical full of wide open spaces. Particularly, I think a little cold, but if I were planting trees everywhere, so I guess quite glad the area, the neighborhood ends with a channel surrounded by restaurants, mostly very "industrial", though one with much charm as The gingette, and the building of the Regional Assembly. A bird's eye view this neighborhood, designed by Ricardo Bofill, has a key. Nearby there are small beach towns, some are typical villages you would find anywhere in Valencia (La Grande Motte, Carnon, etc.) and others have little surprises as Palavas, with a fairytale castle. Stairs of some buildings of the medieval Jewish worship Montpellier. The bone of Barralerie in Montpellier, whose facades are completely remodeled in the eighteenth century, preserved in a set back Jewish worship mentioned by the great local historians. Prior to its classification in the category of historical monuments in 2004, made an assessment on the potential archaeological medieval preserved mainly in the hotel Auteract notary, acquired by the council. If Montpellier is presented in the tenth century as a fortified single primitive nucleus, was strong in the context of urban renewal in the early thirteenth century when the Jewish community settled. The neighborhood is chosen from the pool of two blocks separated by an alley primitive but following a large shaft that connected the stately palace to the city markets. They are distinguished on the lane line of the synagogue building, the mikveh and the house of charity. In efervesciencia of the early thirteenth century, the old plot consists of small units underwent numerous transformations to build larger spaces in the form of patrician houses. This applies to the synagogue, which has a façade of more than 10 m long. This situation led to certain restrictions and adaptations. The plant peculiar to the synagogue evokes the probable existence of two previous homes, and the disparity of the building which houses the synagogue and mikveh indicates that it is previously dividing two houses: this is confirmed by the orientation of the plot, the junction of the two facades, the unevenness of the floors and roofs, and the absence of direct communication between the two sites. However several common elements testify to the transformation into a community together: the alignment of the three doors of the synagogue, mikveh room floor and facing the alley in the basement excavation for the pool mikveh ritual and the lower hall in the basement of the synagogue with the ground at the same level, same height of the vault vaulting technique and the same for both spaces. The building which houses the mikveh is only kept to the first floor. The upper part was rebuilt in the sixteenth century, but in the basement is a room up to the dead whose function is still unknown, a narrow staircase leading to the locker room with niches and benches as well as the swimming pool carved more than 6 m below the street. The synagogue building has for its part a comprehensive and consistent medieval elevation, consisting of a large low room in the basement, two floors and attic. The lower room communicates directly with the synagogue by a staircase and an opening in the dome (Figure 3). Alley a pointed door opens to the space of a single stretch cultic perhaps holding a platform as suggested by two arcs preserved corners (Figure 4). This peculiar structure requires the integration of a distribution system, covering and lighting that suits a piece that rises from one stretch to the first floor, or about 8 m high, which is confirmed by the absence of holes for the decking and the existence of a large paired vain at ground level. The rise of the Jewish community to his first exile in 1306 resulting in topographic location of the synagogue as mandated by the rule in the upper part of the city near a water source, in this case the water table and in the presence of units of a religious nature to the mikveh, ritual bath of purification, the charitable nature of the alms house and school didactic nature. The study of this hotel that will shortly be carefully will allow us to further our understanding of medieval plot of the domestic architecture of Montpellier and especially the mode of settlement, the history and customs of the Jewish community thanks to the exceptional preservation of this set of medieval worship.
Place de la Comedie, which can be described as a true downtown. A large square, really great and nice all of it surrounded by the typical French nineteenth-century buildings at one end of it is the theater of comedy that gives its name to the square and at the other end, after spending a pleasant park is a modern theater with next-generation architecture. From this square you can go to a modern shopping and the Triangle, which links the first with the Polygon and ultimately the City Council and the district of Antigone. Attention: If there remains the same policy as when I was last in the Polygone after business hours you can park for a ridiculous price at that time an open time. We stopped at Antigone area to retrace the path and get into the alleys of the old town. All it pedestrian, where the streets and squares alternate with broad streets and spaces.

In the northeast corner of the square you will find one of the many parks of Montpellier: Esplanade Charles de Gaulle. Some of the restaurants that huddle in the Place de la Comédie. One of the best places to eat in Montpellier was on the terrace of Sister's coffee. The menu is not overly expensive and the cuisine is good, the terrace just behind the church of "St. Roch Le" is very quiet and super cozy. Across the church, is the square where we had coffee St.Roch while our son burned calories in the playground. The Church can be visited, is open to the public and there are not many tourists. Watermarks timber interior are nicer than the exterior stone and has a beautiful pulpit. The city is clean, elegant and refined French architecture, typical of the medieval and modern times, as the old salts.

As in all France is not difficult to find a proper restaurant or even interesting enough for an acceptable price.

The nerve center of Montpellier is in the Place de la Comédie, the source of the Three Graces and the building of the Paris Opéra-Comedie. To get to the most modern Antigone district, must cross the Poligone, the shopping area. At the end of the Middle Ages, Montpellier was enclosed by fortifications and began to choke. Nobody cared but-almost like a command-growing pines from a tower, called La Tour des Pins. At that time, Dr. Nostradamus, received at the University of that city, healing with medicinal plants, aided by astrology. In one of his many predictions, have said that Montpellier disappear when the pines of the tower, and old, are falling. However, after the doctor died, and the pines, whose roots ruining the building were replaced by cypress trees.

Cars are prohibited in the Ecusson, the medieval city center, one of the largest pedestrian areas in Europe. In the labyrinthine streets, urban ear is adapted to silence.

Over time, the architectural transformations Ecusson lived medieval fabric incorporated without violence. An antique recycled, with buildings that seem to fall apart: Part of the charm. The entrance doors, one meter in height, are always open. The spiral stairs are narrow and are not illuminated. Rents here are the most expensive.   the Place de la Comedie: southeast of downtown, the old medieval square is one of the most beautiful in France.

You will recognize it easily because it is bordered by boulevards that follow the ancient walls. Demos for a walk downtown and see what are the sites of interest: the Tower of Babote: has long been an astronomical observatory, now allows access to the old town, near the former bourgeois neighborhoods. Tower of Pines: An old prison for women.

Note that 17% of these students are foreign nationals, you guessed it, Montpellier is a favorite destination for Erasmus students and other scholarships, so the city has a youthful and very fresh and dynamic student. Since 2004 the historic center is restricted to pedestrians, so if I can give you good advice is this: Leave the car in one of the parking provided for the purpose on the outskirts of the city and move to transport. It will save you many jams, lack of free parking spaces and the consequences of the law that prohibits a car is parked in the same place more than 24 hours straight. Do not worry, the city has it all for you to scroll at your leisure: bus, a network of trams and trains very practical.
Two trams passing by the Place de la Comédie, the city center neurágico. The Place de la Comédie owes its noombre the great theater, now National City Opera, which was built in 1780.

The square is organized around the theater, but now also has a couple of restaurants and a luxury hotel. It is a popular spot to meet people before walking into the center.

CT Equipment Group (Poland). A year Hip Hop Life looks at the international events of our culture, and speak for 21 years of break is to have the BOTY (Battle Of The Year) as the main reference as competition and therefore did not we would have lost even in this 2010.

Still an original show that started quite a few laughs which never missed the final rescue of the princess. Turn came to the only Spanish-speaking participants, from Guatemala went into action the very young Chapin Crew with a show in which we could barely see PowerMoves, which was expected to not pass the final. However, this team has come to this international competition after only three years after winning dancing and all of Central America so it is possible that in some years we are witnessing a crew at a level that has nothing to envy to the best.

The project is an extension and evolution of B-boying workshops offered at the old post office. Then, the program was limited to such facilities, without official venue where young people could practice once finalized the courses. There was always support from the administration of the Historic Center. But where to locate missing this growing movement. "It was in 2008 when we met Esther," says Mr. Fer, national rapper and one of the founders of the school, referring to the guardian angel that you hit the gas to Transcend. From the land of tulips, Van Gogh and Johann Cruyff, Esther came to Guatemala to volunteer. He attended a breakdancing class and saw with great anxiety the possible social change representing these activities. The class gathered about 60 students danced and shared. "There were many gangs and violence in the area, but she was hopeful that the guys invest their time dancing," says Mr. Fer. And through this initiative they decided to take this project, give it a home and fight to support them. It transcends born in 2009, with seven members who formed a partnership with legal consent, but it was until last year when it was in the sixth. The original idea was to create a place where young people could receive free or low cost classes. The staff was as accessible as hop scene in the community signed up to take many classes that began only with the B-boying. Back in Holland, Esther summoned a group of artists in order to finance the project and created Friends of Transcend, an association dedicated to financially supporting school students. Through its support gathered 500 euros (about Q5, 000) to give start to the school and the courses. Transcends opened doors to offer only the B-boy. However, later courses were implemented MC (rapping), graffiti and DJ, and when he saw that there was little participation of women, it also created the B-Girling same discipline as the B-boys that focused only female. And thanks to support municipal and create a partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the boys participated in school programs open and gave shows in schools and others. Gradually paved the way for young hip hop. The first instructors and teachers who were part of the teaching goes beyond the same partners were planted the seed. Then, in the kinds of graffiti GuateGraff joined them, probably the most important company of gender and urban visual art in the country, and national and Ekis Ekis rappers also joined the cause.

Like any artist who hopes to live your passion, the same students work transcends not only to be getting better, but to someday become professional dancers or rappers to earn every day thanks to his talent and the art they produce. But in a country as artistically limited, how likely is this? "It's difficult, of course, always possible," said Mr. Fer the matter. Some of the artists who study or work in Transcends are hired for presentations at parties 15 years, colleges, schools, universities and anywhere you want your services. "Some B-boys do live for this," adds Mr. Fer, "teach in schools and here at Transcend. Shows as a way to make income and have survived. However, it is necessary to be too good or have a great race to do so. It is necessary to support this kind of art. " However, the B-boys live act and as DJs and rappers as musicians and have built a culture and spaces where they can excel. Here is the example of Chapin Crew DJ Crew Soundsystem Básico3 and Bacteria, but the graffiti is uphill race. It transcends members condemn the failure to have a place to practice these skills. However, GuateGraff supports art and legal graffiti, which although does not have municipal consent, is to paint houses and abandoned walls. But the ideal would be an exhibition where artists paint live art remains a few weeks and then paint it white and start again from scratch. Forms of support for being a self-sufficient project, transcends always looking for ways to support to survive, thanks to grants or contracts. Also, Mr. Fer Please support and dissemination to the media to follow the expansion of recognition and prestige of the school.
