During Roman times, the Magne Tower, visible from a distance, indicated the presence of the city and the temple located at the foot of the hill.
The octagonal structure was three storeys, 36m, high. The top of the tower has now gone and it is now 32m high.
The Roman Tower was built to surround an even more ancient tower, which has left traces in the interior.
Climbing the tower provides an amazing view over Nîmes.
