Located in the triangle formed by Nîmes,
Camargue and Provence, Beaucaire started out as a fortified castle
named ‘Belli-Cadrum' because of its square shape. Founded in the 6th century BC, Beaucaire was one of the stages on the
famed Via Domitia which linked Italy to Hispania (121 BC).
What to see, what to visit : the church Notre-Dame des Pommiers (18th century); the 12th century castle; the Auguste-Jacquet Museum, which is in the castle's listed gardens; the Via Domitia.
