To say this was a fairly important part of Roman Nimes it is sadly not given much now. On a main street but tucked in between buildings. No grand notice to say much about. All fenced off. The statue of Caesar Augustus and ruin arches...More

Walked up to this gate after visiting the cathedral. Not the most interesting thing to see but considering how old it is, it's worth the walk. There is a massive church opposite which is also worth a look at.

A good sized preserved section of the old Roman fortifications and the guarded entry ports/gates that restricted entry into the walled city of olden days. Has a great statue of Emperor Augustus in pride of place.

Ancient Roman Arch, one of the doors to the old Roman city. More interesting is the other Porte de France door.
