  • Outside, the cathedral is impressive. Because closing at noon we could not get inside. The city is small and this is one of the sights, so it's worth seeing.  more »
  • Free of charge. The Cathedral is beautiful, however does not have a lot of historical information on the site. Worth knowing.

  • Date: 24/08/2016 place to visit: Cathedrale Notre - give me-Et-Saint Castor of Nîmes to be a cathedral is the smallest I've ever been. Its construction dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries and is the fourth most important building built in Nimes after La Tour Magne, the Maison Carrée and Arènes. Outside of it, we have a small square with a fountain overflowing and the Musee de Vieux Nîmes.
