The Cevennes

The Cevennes are a mountainous region forming part of the Massif Central. They extend mainly over the departments of Lozère, Gard and Hérault. The southern part has a Mediterranean climate. The region of Mont Lozère and Mont Aigoual has a more mountainous climate, given the altitude of these two massifs. 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 housing a large permanent population. They are mostly farmers.
