  • It is a place of Nîmes; has this place played the history of Nimes, the Protestant anyway, here the Nîmois of middle age is concentrated... when places of prayers were also places of meetings and shares

  • Compared to the history, architecture and decor of other churches and cathedrales we have visited, this is very plain 
  • Spent half a day visiting Nimes city centre, we could not have missed this beautiful Gothic cathedral!

  • 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.
