Near the city of Nimes, near the department of Provence lies this village which has a beautiful arcaded square, "Place des Herbes", where the weekly market can be found and where they filmed some scenes of the film Cyrano. The village has the only circular bell, not any younger than from the 12th century and a castle (as any French city or town), which belonged to the Dukes of Uzes.
Uzes is a French commune located in the department of Gard and the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the valley of the Alzon River. It belongs to the district of Nîmes and the cantón of Uzès. The tower is a part of the Cathedral of Uzes (Saint-Théodorit) and both monuments are very beautiful and worth seeing. You can see the entire valley from the tower.
