New town since 1st January 2016 and the meeting of the towns of Florac and La Salle-Prunet, Florac-Trois-Rivières is located in Occitania, in the department of Lozère. The one that takes its name from the Latin Flor acquae, Flower of the waters, takes place not far from Quézac at the confluence of four rivers that have earned its appellation.

Situated partly in the Cévennes National Park, Florac-Trois-Rivières is appreciated for its preserved nature and its privileged walks. With its ancient alleys and traditional architecture, the town of Occitania is not lacking in charm and interest.

You will enjoy a real haven of peace far from the tumult of the city in this city where water reigns supreme.

Visits, leisure and activities nearby

Przewalski horses are prehistoric horses that have never been domesticated. Morphologically, they differ from domestic horses. They come from Mongolia and are acclimated to the Causse above Florac where they live and breed in the wild. When the herd gets too large, the surplus is returned in original Mongolian steppes.
