Bagnols-sur-Cèze (Occitan: Banhòus de Céser) is a commune in the Gard department in the Languedoc-Roussillon région in southern France.

History

A small regional center, Bagnols-sur-Cèze was quite certainly a Roman town (the name of the town comes from the Latin balnearius meaning baths) before the main part was built in the 13th century around a central arcaded square that is still preserved today. At the same period, the regional market was installed here, undoubtedly contributing to its expansion.
