les Arčnes de Nîmes

les Arčnes de Nîmes dates from the 1st century. The exterior is quite well-maintained, and the interior is open to visitors for exploration.

























A self-guided tour is available to venture around the amphitheatre, and re-live the days of old when so much blood was spilled within these walls - human and animal.



















Why is there a clock there?









































I risked my life and peered off the side to see what the rest of the city looks like.

pretty amazing structure. And still in use!

this is to me the second largest arena from that era that i've seen (after the one in Rome).

Sigur Ros played here and I thought this could be a great occasion to do an equivalent of Pink Floyd's Live In Pompeii (key iconic concert film), but there isn't even *one* video on youtube from that concert... Maybe SR are the kind of band that has the attendance searched for cameras at the entrance.

I know this arena from Rammstein's Völkerball live DVD. One of the best concert DVDs I've seen, also thanks to the amazing atmosphere of this historic venue. Love the fact that they still use it after all these centuries.
