Long Description:
[EN] The clock is mounted on a tower 31 meters high in the historic center of Nîmes.

The present building was rebuilt from 1752 to 1754, in place of an older 15th century belfry. The summit terrace supports an elegant wrought iron campanile in the shape of a crown encircling the bell of the hours.

The clock is circular, the graduation is engraved in the rock. The numbers are Roman numerals.
