Small village located on the banks of the Ardèche river, the village of Ruoms has a rich medieval past. Its historic center, discreetly hidden behind the lively shopping street, is an invitation to stroll.

The historic center of Ruoms

Surrounded by ramparts, the old village of Ruoms is a charming and surprising discovery.

Small, cool and shaded alleys, balconies and flower-filled terraces, testimonies of a rich historical past, it is a real invitation to stroll.

The Defilés de Ruoms tourist route

Departing from Ruoms, this road, carved into the rock in the 19th century, offers a spectacular panorama of the limestone cliffs.

First a succession of tunnels and impressive arches, then the road winds through a deep gorge upstream from the Ardèche river, then from the Ligne, to the Bellevue junction.
