This Roman monument may not have the grandure and scale of some of the other Roman buildings in Nimes, but is interesting and worth a visit nonetheless.
No-one is quite sure of its original use nor the reason it came by its name.
Today it is partly ruined although you can see columns, corridors, vaults and niches which may have been used to display statues.
A fire is believed to have destroyed it around 1600.
You'll find it alongside the Jardins de la Fontaine and it's free to visit.
