Ancient Roman stronghold (Trevidum). Shooting obligatory passage.

Former coaching inn ("pataches") where we replaced the stagecoach horses, exhausted by the great ascent from Florac.

Many hamlets amount from Florac: The Mazel (on Causse of slopes opposite) Grattegals and mill on the river, Ferrières and stagecoach stop, the "Village" with the town hall, the old church and the temple, and then at the top Nozières and former stagecoach stop.

Today hosts Saint-Laurent-de-Trèves people working in Florac, and many vacationers during the summer months.
