Temple of Diana

Nestling amid the greenery of the Jardins de la Fontaine, these romantic ruins were once the Roman temple of Diana. Dating from the 2C, this building, the exact function of which is unknown, was destroyed in 1577 during the Wars of Religion. It is composed of a main room, the cella, which has a barrel vault and is flanked by two side corridors.
