The Maison Carrée is an ancient building in Nîmes, southern France; it is one of the best preserved Roman temples to be found anywhere in the territory of the former Roman Empire.
Battle of Nîmes
The Battle of Nîmes took place shortly after the capture and destruction of Avignon in 736. Charles Martel failed to capture the Umayyad city of Narbonne but devastated most of the other principal settlements of Septimania, including Nîmes, Agde, Béziers and Maguelonne, which he viewed as potential strongholds of the Saracens. The city of Nîmes and the Roman amphitheatre (turned into a fortress by the Visigoths) were destroyed under the orders of Charles Martel.
Arena of Nîmes
The Arena of Nîmes is a Roman amphitheatre found in the French city of Nîmes. Built around 70 AD, it was remodelled in 1863 to serve as a bullring. The Arenas of Nimes is the site of two annual bullfights during the Feria de Nîmes, and it is also used for other public events. The building encloses an elliptical central space 133 m long by 101 m wide. It is ringed by 34 rows of seats supported by a vaulted construction.
Stade des Costières
Stade des Costières is a football stadium in Nîmes, France. It is the current home of Nîmes Olympique. The stadium is able to hold 18,482 people and opened in 1989.
The Carré d'art at Nîmes in southern France houses a museum of contemporary art and the city's library. Constructed of glass, concrete and steel, it faces the Maison Carrée, a perfectly preserved Roman temple that dates from the 1st century BC. In 1984, twelve architects, including Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel and César Pelli were invited to submit proposals for the museum. A design by the British architect Norman Foster was selected, and the building was opened in May 1993.
Nîmes Cathedral (Cathédrale Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Castor de Nîmes) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Nîmes, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to the local saint Castor of Apt. It was the seat of the Bishops of Nîmes until 1877, when the name of the diocese was changed, and is still the seat of their successors the Bishops of Nîmes, Uzès and Alès. The cathedral is believed to stand on the site of the former temple of Augustus. It is partly Romanesque and partly Gothic in style.
