The markets on Saturday and Wednesday demonstrate the full character of the region with local produce and wares and are much appreciated and well attended. Uzès is also very much valued by film directors who have used the town as a setting for their films, a good example being Cyrano de Bergerac.
At the foot of Uzès, in the Alzon Valley is the spring which supplies the channel wending its way to and over the Pont du Gard to feed the town of Nîmes. The connection of Uzès with the manufacture of sweets is now represented by HARIBO and has resulted in the founding of the excellent Musée du bonbon.
Enhance your stay by exploring the medieval streets, the ducal château and the renaissance houses and mansions. During your exploration you will appreciate the shade of the trees, especially the plane trees in the Place aux herbes, the cooling freshness of the fountains and the mant welcoming cafés and restaurants in this lovely town.
