Long Description:
Crédits : Ville de Nîmes

"En 1857, on batît ici le premier temple protestant nîmois depuis l'inscription de la liberté des cultes dans la déclaration des droits de l'homme et du citoyen. En raison de défauts de construction, le temple est démoli en 1869 et reconstruit entre 1870 et 1874 par l'architecte de la ville, Granon. La façade fait référence à l'architecture romane. À l'intérieur, une charpente métallique - matériau de construction caractéristique du XIXe siècle - dessinée comme des croisées d'ogives, soutient la voûte de la nef."
