Development of Les Jardins de la Fontaine near Nimes, France, began in 1745 under the orders of King Louis XV. The Magne Tower and Temple of Diane display the unmistakable influence the Roman Empire had in the city.
Guests can spend hours walking on wide pathways and climbing the stairs, viewing marble statues and ancient urns, relaxing on one of the many park benches, and observing stunning views of the city of Nimes.
Along with the majestic fountain, this 15-hectare park includes two primary gardens, the 18th-century classic garden, and the Mediterranean garden, and a wide variety of tree species, such as pine, oak, chestnut, cypress, and cedar.Places nearby:
