A little bit history -
Larzac is rich in medieval history. The remnants of the Templiers and Hospitaliers can still be seen, particularly in the villages of La Cavalerie and La Couvertoirade.
A particular geologic environment -
The limestone plateau of Larzac was formed in the Jurassic period by the slow sedimentation at the bottom of a formerly tropical ocean.
The water sculpts the depths of limestone into an extraordinary network of galleries, caves, caverns, rivers and subterranean lakes.
On the surface, the landscapes of steppe and dry lawns where sheep graze, contrast with the chaos of stones.
Fauna and flora -
The natural reserve of the Big Limestone plateau is a fantastic place to observe the protected wild fauna and a flora. From majestic vultures to orchid lawns where insects shelter, the natural environment still offers biodiversity.
