  • 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.
