Metropolitan Montpellier Méditerranée (French: Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole) is the intercommunal structure gathering the commune of Montpellier in France and some of its suburbs.


The district of Montpellier was created in 1965. In 2001, it became an agglomeration community (French: Communauté d'agglomération Montpellier Agglomération).[1] On January 1, 2015, the Metropolian community replaces the agglomeration community in accordance with a law of January 2014.[2]


Metropolitan Montpellier Méditerranée covers 31 communes.[3] The communes with « ° » are the 15 members of the former district of Montpellier.

Palavas-les-Flots left the Agglomeration community of Montpellier Agglomération on January 1, 2005. The commune was one of the initial member communes of the "district de Montpellier".
