The Cévennes National Park today extends over the departments of Lozère, Gard and Ardèche. Mid-mountain territory, it is made up of five geographical entities: the Aigoual massif, the Méjean causse with the Tarn and Jonte gorges, Mont Lozère, the Cévennes valleys and the Cévennes foothills. A protected and regulated magical destination, which still lets some mysteries fly ...


Discover the charter Heritage Discovery.

The petrified forest of Champclauson, The Chassezac gorges, Païolive wood, the Cocalière cave, Le Vallon du Villaret, so many places to visit absolutely for a weekend or a longer stay to better understand our heritage.

A little historical parenthesis to better understand this heritage: The Cévennes, a land of granite and schist, are located on the southern edge of the Massif Central and on the Mediterranean side, between the sources of the Ardèche and the Hérault. The landscape was entirely redesigned by the hand of man who created benches, faysses, terraces fitted out for the cultivation of vines, mulberry trees and cereals. The habitat sometimes of schist, sometimes of granite, covered with slate, still merges today in the harmonious environment of nature. It was the country of the Camisards. The Huguenots of the Cévennes wore the white shirt at night as a sign of recognition, hence the name "Camisard". TheHistory of the Cévennes had its bloody hours when the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 resulted in the ban on practicing the Reformed religion.

 

Like hunted beasts, chased by the dragons of Marshal de Villars, shepherds, wool carders, chestnut pickers, the common people prophesied "freedom of conscience" to the world. A freedom that we unconsciously find in the rugged terrain, the mountains and the impenetrable but familiar valleys, which have become natural shelters where secret assemblies have been held ... Some names of Camisard leaders: Roland, Jean Cavalier, but also of martyr: Marie Durand. To follow in the footsteps of these great characters who have made our history, perhaps start by visiting our village Villefort and the lake, Alès, Génolhac, the village of Saint Ambroix, Saint Julien du Tournel and its castle. , the village of Banne, La Garde Guérin (fortified village which represents a particularly well preserved example of medieval architecture), and the Mont Lozère tourist circuit from Vialas to Chamborigond.

Are you already won over? Come and discover or rediscover the fauna, flora, mountains, villages and inhabitants that bring the Cévennes and its region to life. culture… Listen to the song “the Mountain” by Jean Ferrat, and you will have an idea…

When the level of the lake is low, you may be lucky enough to see some remains submerged under the waters of a XNUMXth century bridge, which was not destroyed during the impoundment.
