Alès lies 46 km north northwest of Nîmes, on the left bank of the Gardon River, which half surrounds it. It is located at the foot of the Cévennes, near the Cévennes National Park, amongst beautiful scenery. Once noted for cloth and silk, Ales’ industries now focus on making machinery, electrical equipment, hosiery, and base metal and silver are mined near the town. In the 16th century Ales was one of the principal centres of French Protestantism. The Peace of Ales, signed in Ales in 1629, stripped the Huguenots of their political powers. Several buildings dating from this period remain.

Places to visit in Languedoc - Roussillon

Languedoc - Roussillon

The provinces of Languedoc and Roussillon stretch from the foothills of the Pyrenees on the Spanish border to the mouth of the river Rhone. The region comprises Lozere, Gard, Herault, Aude and the Pyrenees-Orientales. The area combines miles of gentle coastline with a rugged inland, offering mountain walks in the Haute Languedoc and high plateau of the Certagne and acres of vineyards in the Corbieres and Minervois. The enduring legacy of the Romans is evident in the great amphitheatre at Nimes, while the abbeys of St Martin-du-Canigou, St Michel-de-Cuxa and St Guilhem-le-Desert are superb examples of early Romanesque architecture.
