Alès
The Essential
An industrial hub and gateway to the Cévenol mountains, a few traces of Alès' mining past are still visible. It makes an excellent base camp for excursions to the Cévennes region. In summertime, the Monday market, packed with arts and crafts, together with a high-quality festival programme, make this town extremely pleasant, further enhanced by museums and a delightful Mediterranean flavour.
