Alès: largest town in the Cévennes

Alès is the one town you just have to visit during your stay in the Gard. This is a one-of-a-kind mining town in France, where you can venture into the depths and find out about the way miners lived in days gone by. You'll also love the town's historic centre, where you'll be able to see some amazing monuments such as Fort Vauban and the cathedral of John the Baptist. The town is also famous for its two museums: the Pierre André Benoît museum of contemporary art and the Colombier museum of prehistory.

Alès is also a place to have some fun times with the family. Come and see the automobile complex, the Pôle mécanique d’Alès race track, and enjoy a bit of go-karting! And for something a little quirky? Come to the Bambouseraie (bamboo garden, a whole ocean of greenery and coolness that will take you on a journey all over the world. A unique time to enjoy together!
