Why Visit Uzès
Uzès has a permanent population of 8,000+ with at least double that many bodies during the height of tourist season.

Although the ramparts no longer serve as protection, the stone fortifications provide a slight buffer from the noise of snarled traffic on the ring road.
Inside and outside the walls of Uzès there are secrets to be told and many that remain to be discovered.
