Uzès, the first duchy of France, invites walkers and architecture-lovers to discover its old town, which is full of charm and rich in ancient heritage.

A blend of Medieval, Renaissance and classical styles, the duchy of Uzès – or ducal castle – is one of the flagship sites of the city. Visit this place steeped in history and discover the gothic chapel and its superb stained glass windows, the splendid Renaissance façade of the central building, the furnished apartments, the cellar and the Bermonde Tower, an imposing 11th century keep offering a wonderful view of the rooftops of the historic centre.

Discover Uzès peacefully, wandering through its alleyways, squares and monuments, including private mansions and the remarkable Romanesque Fenestrelle Tower, a relic of the old cathedral, which is notable for being the only example of a round bell tower in France!

Above all, don't miss the Place aux Herbes square and its beautiful arcade houses. Full of activity with its café terraces and restaurants, every Saturday a Provençal market takes place in this pleasant square, full of colours and flavours.

The medieval garden at the foot of the King's Tower is also worth a look, with a fine range of ancient vegetable varieties and medicinal plants.

Les Nuits Musicales d'Uzès, a well-known music festival, takes place in July, with venues including the ducal palace, Saint Théodorit cathedral and the bishop's palace courtyard.
