Nîmes, Ville d’Art and d’Histoire


All About Nîmes.
Nîmes has over two thousand years of history. Two thousand years of passion, architecture, art and stories to tell.
In this 21st century, Nimes has sought to share its two thousand years of history by joining the national French network of Cities and Regions of Art and History.
Treasures of the French Rome – it’s an understatement to say that Nîmes cultivates paradox. It was founded by Celtic tribes who paid homage to the gods of the springs; the Romans too were drawn by the presence of water and the name of the city comes from the Roman god Nemausus. With the Maison carrée, the Roman Amphitheatre, Magne Tower, the Augustus gate....there are many vestiges from the Roman era which alone are worth a visit. Two millennia later, works by innovative architects and artists (Foster, Novel, Starck, Raysse, Gregotti, Wilmotte) carry on the dialogue started by the Romans. Between the two, a plethora of architectural and cultural treasures attest to the rich identity of Nîmes. The city also has a strong Protestant fiber, and fiercely southern exuberances which takes predominance particularly during the bullfights and accompanying férias. The City of Nîmes is best explored on foot, in and out of the old streets and quarters.
