Map of the Cévennes and the Cévennes National Park allows us to locate this region which extends mainly over the departments of Lozère, Gard and Hérault. The southern part has a Mediterranean climate, while the region of Mont Lozère and Mont Aigoual has a more mountainous climate, given the altitude of these two massifs.
The Cevennes National Park is located almost entirely in the Lozère department. This park was created in 1970, its creation had a long history since the idea dates back to 1914. This park has a unique feature among national parks, that of sheltering a large permanent population. They are mostly farmers.
