This is as pure and well-preserved Roman temple as you will find anywhere in France. Erected during the reign of Augustus (late 1C BCE), it was dedicated to the "princes of youth", the emperor's grandsons. It exudes a fragile charm, due to the harmony of its proportions, and to its position in the town, at the centre of a paved square, opposite the contemporary structure of the Carré d'Art in which it is reflected.
