Overview
More
The Maison Carree in Nimes is the only Roman ancient temple completely preserved. The inspiration for the design of the Maison Carree came from the temples of Apollo and Mars Ultor in Rome. Inside, you will discover a 23 minutes film "Nemausus, the birth of Nimes" which explains how Nimes became a roman city and shows the construction of the main roman sights of the city (Arena, Maison Carree, Tour Magne).

Yes have a beer but it's very expensive for what you get,and service is not top of the line either. In truth don't bother.

A real hidden gem in Nines. This small but very pretty Roman Temple is in the middle of the city, so well prepared and interesting. Worth seeing the film inside

A beautifully restored Roman Temple in a fantastic location. We were a bit disappointed to find out that the interior is completely gutted and just contains a cinema showing a half hour film on the origins of Nimes. An interesting film nevertheless.

This beautiful building is quite an attraction, still standing in quite good condition. Inside you can see a movie of its history.

Visited this attraction in conjunction with our ticket to the Arena of Nimes. Due to time constraints we did not view the display inside. The temple facade is very impressive and well worth the short walk from the Arena to visit.

This is a very well preserved Roman Temple. Only some of the columns show wear. It is well worth visiting although we did not go inside.

This place is very well preserved. You can see nothing inside as it's turned into a movie theatre which shows quite a good film about how Nimes came to be Roman. The film is in French with English subtitles so I understood it all. If...More

We were not able to visit La Maison Carree long enough to go inside, but our visit was absolutely spectacular and exciting. This Roman temple is indeed the best preserved Roman temple in France if not anywhere. The ruins were startling in their brightness with...More

Very steep steps and no hand rail . The interior was closed when we were there but even so the whole former temple was very impressive. Many consider this to be the world's best preserved Roman Temple. It was built by Marcus Agrippa and it...More
