Nages-et-Solorgues is a residential village on the farming plains southwest of Nîmes, in an area of Roman and pre-Roman sites.

We found this a sleepy little town, but there are some nice things about it. In spite of its age, it's very up-to-date, but there are old streets to wander. The 19th century church is topped by a campanile.

At the main square in front of the town hall (mairie) is a lovely, tall fountain beneath shady platans. There's a smaller but very lovely fountain at the Place du Griffon in the center of the village.

The Roman fountain in Nages-et On the Rue de la Fontaine Romaine going north from the center is an ancient fountain area called the Roman Fountain. This is the street that goes up the east side of the Oppidum de Nages.
 

Oppidum de Nages

The Oppidum de Nages, or Oppidum des Castels, is large, complex pre-Roman defensive site on the hill beside Nages-et-Solorgues. It's the reason the village is here, and the reason to visit the village.
