After you’ve made the most of your time exploring the area around Montélimar it’s time to visit some of the city’s cultural sites. Your first stop should be at the top of the city, at the medieval château des Adhémar - a powerful family who gave the city its name and built the palace, during the 12th century. More recent but just as interesting is the Montélimar nougat museum, housed within one of the oldest working factories. A tour of the facility is a great opportunity to learn about the history of this confectionery which, within just a few decades, has become the culinary emblem of Montélimar. Needless to say, the interactive visit ends on a gourmet note with a browse around the well-stocked shop.
