Uzès is a medieval hilltop town dating from Roman times. Its ancient centre, originating in the 11th century, is circled by a boulevard that traces the line of the original defensive walls. At its heart is the Place aux Herbes with its arcaded shops and restaurants and a twice-weekly market on Wednesday and Saturday. Uzès is the premier Duchy of France, and the duke still lives in his urban château in the centre of town. The skyline of the town is rightly famous, not just for its ancient towers but for the Pisa-like Tour Fenestrelle next to the cathedral. Uzès punches a lot of weight for its size with an impressive offering of history, art, culture, and year-round festivals.
