The history of Montélimar , and specifically the Gournier quarter dates back 5000 years. Part of the Roman Empire in the first century BC, "Acunum" benefited from its privileged location on the road linking Lyon to Arles. The city then passed into the hands of important families, like the Adhémar de Monteil family. In 1449, Montélimar became part of Dauphiné. During the French Wars of Religion the citadel which dominates the city was built. In the 19th century, Montélimar began to produce nougat. In terms of urban planning, the city was built following a classis Gallo-Roman city plan: it extends on either side of a north-south axis.
From almond orchards to lavender fields, to cypress hedges, the region has magnificent landscapes. For a relaxing break from sightseeing, head to the Jardin Public gardens. Nestled in the corner of the city, it has a lake and historic bandstand.
Montélimar has lots of interesting heritage, such as the Château des Adhémar castle, built in a Roman style on the edges of the city which today houses a contemporary art centre.
