An aquatic wonderland in the colours of the wonders of the world

Every summer, from 12 to 15 August, the Jardins de la Fontaine are illuminated to the rhythm of the water. This impressive show combines video projections on a giant screen, water, light and fire effects, and music. Taking part for the seventh time, Crystal Group named the 2015 edition, 'Wonders of the World, Wonders of Nîmes'. The colourful scenes of this free 25-minute show became the place to be this summer in Nîmes.
