PLACES OF INTEREST

You will discover many secrets hidden in this wonderful region. To go from the North to the South of "Lozère", you will go through a granitic area to reach a schistose one ; all that within 50 km.
A specific flora, fauna and architecture come from geology (cf. map).
The North of "Aubrac" strauped by transhumout herds is well known for its typical meal : "Aligot" (mashed potatoes with aligot cheese).
The famous Gevaudan wolf killed its first victims in "Margeride", in the North East of Lozère.
The deep "Gorges of the Chassezac" is the limit with the Ardèche country.
Further in the South, you will see the Cevennes National Park, the country of the "Camisards" (resistance workers during the second world war) and that is where chesnut is ground.
The most populated part of the region is the "Lot Valley" which stretches across Lozère.
The "Gorges of the Tarn" and the "Causses" are in the South West of Lozère and are the least populated areas but the most impressive ones. The Grands Causses Regional Park is protected.
You will have many things to visit in this region :
The Dargilan Caves called "the Pink cave" is a 1200 meters walk in a wonderful underground world. No doubt, you will let your imagination go when you see "rocky chaos of Nimes le Vieux" on the Mejean Causse , as well as the "Chaos of Montpellier le Vieux" on the "Causse Noir".
The old typical farm in "Hielzas" presents you the life of causse’s farmers (architecture, way of life) in the 1950's. You will have the opportunity to watch a video to help you to understand.
The best way to visit the Gorges of the Tarn is by doing a boat trip with the boatman of la "Malène" or by renting a canoe .
Not very far from the Gorges of the Tarn you can visit the Wolves Gevaudan reserve in "Sainte Lucie" next to Marvejols . The "European Bisons" in "St Alban sur Limagnole", the "Vallon du Villaret" (discovery and play course at the foot of Mont Lozère), the insect city "Micropolis" in "Vezins du Lévézou" near "Sévérac-le-Château", the "Roquefort caves" which are the mover of the local economy, the weather forecast observatory of the "Mont Aigoual".
