La Bruguière is a commune in the Gard department in southern France.


Equidistant from the Cévennes and from the Mediterranean ocean, between the rivers of the Cèze and the Gardon, close to the larger cities of Avignon, Nimes and Alès, as well as Uzès, the village has been a historical center in the region for centuries. La Bruguière is essentially an agricultural village despite its small touristic interest. It has a population of 304 inhabitants.source?
