  • Medieval church of 1200 nestled in the old part of the city with a fabulous square in front of full of people at the tables. A round's worth. Pity that as many calls, in the light was almost absent and therefore we could see very little. Still to be seen.

  • Nimes is a very small town but it is well preserved and has many things to see and enjoy by walk. All of them Roman historic sites.  more »
  • It was lofty and stout churches. Internal Windows low and little less lighting, felt so much darkness. Was a church with a relaxed traditional atmosphere.

  • Date: 24 / 08 / 2016 place of visit: Cathedrale Notre-give me-Et-Saint Castor of Nimes to be a cathedral is of them more small that I have visited. 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.
