Amphitheatre and Temple Nimes

From the terraces to the interior galleries, discover the best preserved amphitheatre from the days of the Romans and walk in the footsteps of ancient spectators. The Maison Carrée is the only ancient Roman temple in France to be completely preserved, although the ceiling of the pronaos (entrance to the temple) and the current door date from the early 19th century. The Temple was part of the new political state of affairs under Emperor August. The temple owes its exceptional level of preservation to the fact that it was constantly in use from the 11th century and its valuable stone was not used for other buildings. The Amphitheatre demonstrates perfect symmetry. It is the best preserved Roman amphitheater.
