At the heart of the Grands Causses Regional Nature Park, at an altitude of around 800 metres, the Causse du Larzac, a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its Mediterranean agro-pastoral cultural landscape, is an immense limestone plateau with a lunar landscape. Its dry grasslands, dotted with moors and ruiniform rocks, are the kingdom of the ewes whose milk is used to produce the famous Roquefort.

The Larzac plateau is also a land steeped in history. Reminders include the Templar and Hospitaller villages of La Cavalerie, La Couvertoirade, Sainte-Eulalie-de-Cernon, Viala-du-Pas-de-Jaux and Saint-Jean d'Alcas. An amazing built heritage made up of towers, ramparts and fortified doors, well worth a look!

In the summer, La Jasse - Maison du Larzac, based in an old sheepfold between Millau and La Cavalerie, offers themed exhibitions, activities and local products.

And for a fun, original way to admire the landscapes of Larzac, nothing beats a velorail trip, departing from the station at Sainte-Eulalie-de-Cernon!
