Orsan is situated next to the road that leads from Bagnols-sur-Cèze to Avignon. Every first of May, you can come to the bullfight that is held in the village. You will see abrivados, bandidos, and you can enjoy roasted meat in the company of the townspeople. During the afternoons, you can attend the races called "rasets" which are held in the arena.
shops There are very few shops in Orsan, due to the proximity of Bagnols-sur-Cèze. You can find only one bakery, a tobacco shop, a café, and a highly rated restaurant.
