Set midway between Nîmes and Avignon, Fournès is the oldest village in the canton. Built around a castle, which only has a few ruins still standing today, Fournès nevertheless has a great many architectural riches: the chapel of Saint-Pierre, the ancient centre, various calvaries, campanile and church. In addition there are geological points of interest – a small stroll will take you to the clay pits, one of the village's most striking features.

What to see, what to visit: the Pont du Gard, the Roman city of Nîmes, Avignon…
Recommended activities: walking and mountain bike itineraries, swimming, rock climbing.
