The Course de Côte du Pont des Abarines is located only a few kilometres from the Col St. Pierre where the European Championship is competed. It starts at the bridge over the Gardon de Mialet and climbs southwards in the direction of St. Jean-du-Gard, which lies in the next valley.
Saint-Jean-du-Gard lies in the south-east of the Cévennes. Which is a mountain range that itself is the southeastern part of the Massif Central. The lightly populated hills and mountains around St-Jean-du-Gard were historically Protestant. The long and troubled history with the Catholic monarchy can still be discovered in the many castles and ruins in the area, including the Château de St-Jean-du-Gard.
The town is also part of the Cévenness National Park. The nature can be enjoyed from a historic train that runs between Anduze and St-Jean-du-Gard. But the most beautiful area of the park is actually the northwest around Florac. The Gorges du Tarn and Gorges du Jonte are exceptional areas of natural beauty that should not be skipped on any holiday.
The nearest city is Alès, some 25km to the east.
