The Causses and the Cévennes, cultural landscapes of Mediterranean agro-pastoralism.

The site of the Causses and the Cévennes is certainly one of the most comprehensive classified sites to discover, combining natural elements (canyons, plateaus, mountains, caves) and cultural ones (agro-pastoralism, agriculture, construction, architecture). These cultural landscapes are also reflected through the region’s gastronomy (lamb, cheese). On the farm, on the drailles (paths used for transhumance) or in the villages, visitors are especially encouraged soak up the atmosphere by meeting the people who live here. After discovering this thousand-year old land, it’s sure to be difficult to leave.
