Here’s one of the Nîmes’ most important buildings, a Roman temple known as Maison Carrée, or the Square House. During the history it has also served as a horse stable and an art museum, and nowadays it holds a small film theatre dedicated to one film only, a 23 minute 3D-movie of the Heros of Nîmes through history. It’s quite interesting!
The square in front of the temple is an important meeting point. Yesterday it was the demonstrators, who had gathered there for the French men abducted in Africa. Maybe some more people joined them a little later? The same demonstrations were held in different cities at the same time, at least in Paris and Marseille, told the evening news.
