Located in the eastern end of the Jardin du Peyrou, Porte Du Peyrou is a triumphal arch designed by Francois Dorbay. Replicating the world famous Porte Saint Denis in Paris, the arch is crowned by Doric entablature, symbolic of a martial monument. The arch was dedicated to the glory of Louis XIV with panels and inscriptions in praise of him. The reliefs embedded within its structure serve as allegories for:

  • Capture of Namur by Louis XIV.
  • Louis being crowned by Victory, symbolised by the figure og Hercules.
  • The digging of Canal du Midi.
  • The Revocation of the Edict of Nantes.

The arch is situated on the highest point of Montpellier and therefore, offers a stunning view of the city and the surroundings.
