place de montélimar
The town specialises in nougat, a special sweet blending egg whites, honey and almonds –reminiscent of the Spanish touron and the Italian torrone. The first almond trees in the area were planted during the seventeenth century – they were soon used in nougat manufacture. Buoyed by the early success of the confectionary, many local people became involved in the nougat industry and the number of almond trees planted throughout the region grew rapidly.
