Pouzilhac, dazzled by light and nestled in the garrigues, is a typical village of Languedoc. It has been inhabited since antiquity and is situated on the former Roman road that connected Nîmes and Alba. It possesses a fortified castle that partly dates from the 14th century; an ancient tower and gate that were part of the ramparts; old houses, some of them restored by lovers of the past; some excellent restaurants; potters; and a renowned wine.
