Boulevard des Arènes, 30000 Nîmes
Arène de Nîmes
The Arena of Nîmes perfectly illustrates the degree of perfection achieved by the Roman engineers for the design and construction of this type of very complex building. Indeed, it presents a perfect symmetry. Oval shaped, it is 133 meters long and 101 wide with a track of 68 by 38 meters. Measuring 21 meters high, its exterior facade is two floors of 60 superimposed arches and an attic, separated by a cornice. At the top, pierced projecting stones received mats to which hung a velum, huge canvas spread over the spectators to protect them from the sun and the weather. Originally, all the arches on the ground floor were open to serve as entry or exit. There are larger Roman amphitheatres, but it is the best preserved of all.

According to legend, the bridge was built in the 12th century. by a young shepherd of Vivarais, Benezet, on celestial order. Completed in 1185, it was the first passage on the Rhone between Lyon and the sea, the bridge then stretches for about 900 meters and has some 22 arches. Dismantled in 1226, rebuilt and several times carried by the Rhone, its use was abandoned in the 17C. It now has four arches and a chapel dedicated to Saint Nicolas. He is famous throughout the world thanks to the children's song "On the Pont d'Avignon". Real technical feat, the Pont d'Avignon, was a permanent building site and formerly connected the two banks of the Rhone. Bearer of legends, emblematic monument of the territory, it has been the subject since 2010 of an unprecedented interdisciplinary work that has mobilized a whole community of researchers under the aegis of Greater Avignon and the CNRS. We can now admire the result of this research through museographic devices and multimedia mediation that reconstruct the bridge in 3D in its landscape at different times.
