Cevennes

Introduction

The Cévennes National Park/Biosphere Reserve, located south of the Massif Central, extends over the departments of Lozère, Gard and Ardèche. A medium mountain territory, it's a region of four geographical entities: the Aigoual massif, the Méjean plateau with the Tarn and Jonte canyons, the Mount Lozère and the Cévennes valleys.  The climate, altitude and geology, which are highly contrasted, have influenced the location and activities of man, architecture, landscapes, vegetation and wildlife in each of these four massifs.

The richness of this territory is based on a magnificent mosaic of natural environments that shelter an exceptional biodiversity, with 2,400 animal species, 2,300 species of flowering plants and ferns, as well as countless mosses, lichens, mushrooms...
