The city of Uzès is located in the Gard department in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, in a region rich in vineyards still called the "French Tuscany".
Renowned as a historic town, Uzès has kept many vestiges of its past. The old town is perfect for strolling through its narrow streets lined with 17th and 18th century mansions. Apart from their magnificent facades, these small cobbled pedestrian streets will lead you to mythical places like the Place aux Herbes. This beautiful square is the place where a popular market comes to life every week where you will find all the local specialities.
In the 17th century, the town was the first duchy of France and has kept a magnificent set of three feudal towers that are a must-see. The most typical monument of the city is undoubtedly the Fenestrelle Tower dating from the 12th century, bell tower of the church Saint-Théodorit d'Uzès. But the town's heritage also includes the church of Saint Etienne, built in 1767, which is a late Baroque building with a Greek cross plan and a beautiful rounded façade.
You can also admire the Capuchin Chapel, built around 1635 on the site of a Roman temple in honour of Augustus, which housed the tombs of the Dukes of Uzes until 1789. Don't forget to visit the Fontaine de l'Eure, built in the first century and used to supply the city of Nîmes with water via an aqueduct about 50 km long.
