A region of Protestantism, resistance, refuge and secrect worship, the Cevennes embodies a harsh and beautiful landscape of liberty. In order to grow vines, olive trees, chestnut trees, blackberry bushes, the people of the Cevennes have had to build, sculpt and tame this landscape, working in harmony with water and stone. The droves, ancient tracks used to drive livestock up to summer grazing pastures, today provide pleasant paths for ramblers to discover our rich and diverse heritage. Here, the Sweet Chestnut ‘Bread-fruit tree’, the blackberry bush, ‘Golden tree’ are witnesses of the region’s prosperous era of silk proudction.
The Causse of Pompignan is only a stone’s throw away from the Tower of Durfort.
In this region of scrubland everything looks similar, yet on this limestone plateau there is an unexpected treasure hidden under each stone. Every village here is like a white stone along the path of the rambler.
