The first stage of the Via Domizia goes up the valley of the Rhone to the Chapelle Saint-Gabriel, where begins the only roughness of the route: a climb with about 200 m in altitude. The Romanesque chapel dominates the Tarascon plain, at the crossroads of two ancient Roman roads: the Aurelia and the Domitia. From the top of the hill a steep descent leads to Saint-Etienne-du-Grès.
