Photographer's Note

Maison Carrée, Nîmes

Although the city of Nîmes has evidence of human occupation going back a few thousand years, it is the Roman monuments for which the city is best known. Certain features are not only well preserved, they are amongst the finest examples of their kind from the Roman era.

The Maison Carrée, about 2,000 years old; is the only remaining Roman temple in the world that is preserved in its entirety.
