What to see in Uzès

  • The old town

This building has survived the ages, today offering you great tours. Enjoy the sweetness of life in Uzès, strolling through the cobbled streets, meeting the many "Historical Monuments" of the city.

  • The Uzès market

Asparagus from Uzège, gariguettes, organic eggs, pélardons, winegrowers ... around sixty producers fill the Place aux Herbes every Wednesday. For more than twenty years, this farmers market has been the symbol of the excellence of local Gard products and a pioneer of short supply chains.

The Saturday market, with its 200 exhibitors, is renowned for its colors, its smells which make it a very popular place for tourists. Uzès has acquired notoriety over the years thanks to the friendliness and authenticity that reigns in its markets. And for a long time, since the first known market place aux Herbes was organized in 1241!
