If all you did whilst staying in Uzès, was to meander around the town,
explore its shops, sample its many restaurants,
and buy wine and cheese from the local markets,
you would have a wonderful week becoming part of the magical charm of Uzès.
But, there are some wonderful sites you should try to see too!
THE CHATEAU ~ THE DUCHY D’UZES
which offer magnificent views of Uzès and the countryside.
SAINT THEODORIT CATHEDRAL
Rue du Portalet, 30700 Uzès Tel: +33 (0)46 62 26 888
The cathedral dates from the Middle Ages, built next to the Bishop’s Palace,
the former seat of the Bishops of Uzès.
It has been destroyed and rebuilt several times, what we see today dates to the 19th century.
but only the organ remains from these times.
