Hiking in the Tour of Margeride (Lozere)


Margeride, is an harmonious mix of trees, fields, moors and clear streams. Cattle farming region, essentially of bovine, it is, on the economic sector, one of the wealthiest of the department... Land of legends, it is the heart of the ancient province of the Gevaudan where, over two centuries ago, stroke the famous beast which killed, as it is said, at least a hundred people. Javols, famous for his excavation, is now only a small village, after having been the capital of the Gevaudan. Region of granite, la Margeride is becoming depopulated, like the other regions of Lozere. The blinds only open during the summer time, thanks to the natives who come back where they passed their childhood for the summer break.
