Between the Languedoc and Provence, 11 kilometres from the roman Pont du Gard, the old town of Uzes is in the region of ancient Gaul called Septimanie. The Duchy of Uzès, right in the centre of the town, is of imposing size and shows its military origins in the 12th century Bermonde Tower, and its ramparts with corner turrets.
The rest of the history of France is shown in its remarkable Renaissance facade from the 16th century,where you see superimposed the 3 classic orders of architecture -ionic, doric and corinthian. It is very rare to see all three in the same facade. The 17th and 18th century meet in the large windows of the facades opening onto the main courtyard and the garden. In this voyage through time you will see the 800 year old cellars, have a magnificent view of the town and the countryside around it from the top of the tower, and visit the furnished apartments of the present ducal family.
