Place du Marché

In the heart of old Nimes, a stone's throw from the amphitheatre, you will find the two symbols of the town - a bronze crocodile sitting on a fountain (a work by Martial Raysse) and a real palm tree. This square teeming with café terraces stands at the end of several pedestrianised shopping streets (Rue de l'Aspic, Rue Régale and Rue des Greffes). On the surface of the square, note the "bronze stud of Nimes", which is designer Philippe Stark's take on the town's emblem.
