Land of travel and transhumance, les sept veines (the seven veins) so called by Julius Caesar. That became the Cevennes as we know today. Land of shale and granite.
The Cevennes is known for the dreadful religious wars of the 17th century and reminds us of the violent and bloody period of the camisard wars.
This valley is shaped by the Gardon with it's refreshing and clean waters. The deep valleys are narrow, separating jagged ridges. The Slopes are mostly forested.
Also in the magnagneries, silkworm breeding houses which many years later were reutilized by the local people for subsistence. The Cevennes gradually reveals a bit more of itself at each end, in it's winding roads or on a path where it is pleasant to stroll amongst our life full of history and nature intact.
