A symmetric space is Hermitian if it admits a complex structure preserved by the isometry group. In this introductory talk I will describe various geometric features of these spaces. I will focus particularly on some natural notion of boundary arising in this context, and emphasize the role played by these objects in studying rigidity questions.
