Book Uzès Holidays and discover the fascinating history of this little French community
Uzes is a small commune located in southern France around 25 km north of the Nimes. The town lies at the source of the Eure, where a Roman aqueduct was built to supply water to the city of Nimes, in the first century BC. The aqueduct itself has become quite an attraction, with the most famous stretch being the Pont du Gard, which was used to carry the fresh water over spectacular arches across the river Gardon. Today the city of Uzes still retains traces of its ancient walls, as well as a Capuchin chapel that was built in 1635. The chapel occupies the site of a temple which was dedicated to Augustus, the first Roman Emperor.
The most famous icon of Uzes is probably the Cathedral, which has been destroyed and rebuilt a great many times over the years. The Cathedral is truly a stunning sight to behold, and offers a great place to learn about the rich and deep history of Uzes. Uzes holiday rentals come in all shapes and sizes, such as grand villas on the outskirts of the city, quaint and cosy cottages, as well as the more traditional hotel stays. If you are looking for Uzes holiday rentals that are central to the city then there are plenty on offer, and they cater for all budgets and party requirements. For those that wish to keep out of the main centre, yet still be close enough to all the major tourist attractions, opting for Uzes holiday homes just outside the city walls may be a better option.
