The Nîmes amphitheatre, built in the late 1st century BC, boasts the same oval shape as Rome’s Coliseum. The 21m tall facade consists of two levels, with two rings of 60 arches stacked on top of one another, along with an attic.

During the Antiquity, the edifice could accommodate 23 000 people along the terraces, a mob thirsting for sport, hunts, animal fights or gladiator combats. Today, the Arènes de Nîmes are traditionally venues for bullfights and ferias, but also numerous concerts by internationally-renowned musicians such as Björk who performed there in 2007.
