日曜日の朝10時頃に訪問しました。 ずっと鐘の音が鳴り響く中、地元の方々がミサに参加するため、次から次へと入って行きました。 大聖堂の中を少しのぞかせて頂きましたが、皆様の祈りの時間を邪魔したくなかったので、すぐに退散しました。 大聖堂の外から建物をゆっくり観察させて頂きました。光の加減で上部はよく見えなかったのですが、ファサード上部帯部分左端にアダムとイブの禁断の果実の一場面を見つけました。Visited around 10 o'clock on Sunday morning. While ringing bells have been the local people attend mass next walked into the next.

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.
