La Maison Carrée

la maison carréeLa Maison Carrée from a different angle. I find it fascinating, thinking that someone has been standing in this very same spot, looking at the beautiful temple like I am now, in… the Roman times… in Medieval times… during the renaissance… the revolution… and after the first and the second world war, relieved to find that the temple is still there.

For those who are living in Paris, the Maison Carrée may look familiar. Yes, it is the La Madeleine church that has gotten inspiration from it!

On the left, by the way, at about where the biker is, is also located the Tourist Office of Nîmes.
