The town of Les Angles in the Gard is located across from Avignon, on a plateau overlooking the Rhône. Favored with a privileged location and situated near Avignon's new T.G.V. station, this town of 7754 inhabitants covers a surface of 1177 hectares. It is in full expansion: its highly active industrial zone attracts a large number of economic partners, companies, and new inhabitants.
 
The town is highly valued as a place of residence, partly because it hosts a number of athletic and cultural events.
 
Moreover, the town's hotels, nestled among the greenery, offer you a welcome retreat after you have spent long hours exploring the nearby sights: the old town, the viaduct, the Pont du Gard, the Palais des Papes, etc.

heritage Parc du Soleil et du Cosmos (The Sun and Cosmos Theme Park): a park where you can learn about the universe. A trail, marked out in the Mediterranean garrigues, presents of our galaxy -- planets, stars, and other satellites -- in miniature.
A trail that explores the heritage of Les Angles is currently in development. It will consist of several paths, inluding one that traces the history of painters who were inspired by the sites and historical monuments of Les Angles through the centuries.
Another path will lead you on a tour that demonstrates the botanical diversity of this land and its impact on the economy and cottage industries.
historique The old town: at the center, you can see the 15th-century church of Notre-Dame de l'Assomption, built in the early Gothic style, and its high, square tower rising above its presbytery. The buildings were constructed on the site of a former Saracen fortress.
 
In the 16th century, Protestants invaded the town and established their garrisons there. They fortified the church and the adjacent buildings.
 
A charming little open-air theater was built to replace the former cemetery which stood nearby. You can also visit the communal furnace, the former town hall, the Chapel of Saint Estève, and the Louis Montagné Castle.
