Pic Saint-Loup

MAISON DES CONSULS

Created in 1951 following excavations by local archaeologists, the inter-communal museum of Pic Saint-Loup, labeled a ‘Museum of France’, was the first prehistory museum of the Hérault and of the Languedoc. Through beautiful collections and temporary exhibitions, it evokes the life and religious practices of the people who colonised the garrigue (scrubland) to the north of Montpellier from the Paleolithic (The Hortus Cave) to the Iron Age. The lifestyle of the Neanderthal man, who lived in the Hortus cave, near Les Matelles, is depicted there. The museum is located in the centre of this medieval village on all the floors of a typical Languedoc style house.
