Nîmes notes

a picture diary from a Roman town in the south of France

Waiting for a change

1 Comment

square in front of st baudile churchHere is a crossing that is waiting for a big change. On the left, yet not visible, is the church St Baudile, and behind me the Roman gateway, Porte d’Auguste. The beautiful building on the right is a part of the University of Nîmes, the site Carmes – only the façade has been saved and all the rest is modern –, while the empty lot is a site of a coming apartement building.

There are already plans for the square to be remodeled, so a few years later the view is probably completely different!
