Lozere: a haven of peace preserved in Occitanie region.
Go to meet a department where Nature, peace and wildlife go together: Lozère. There are mountains, high plains and gorges everywhere. Its average altitude of one thousand meters is the highest in France. It is the only department whose population does not reach 100,000 inhabitants; making it the least populated department in France.
Since the dawn of history, this country has kept its identity, that the Revolution has not broken: the Gevaudan has changed its name sound for that of Lozère but its borders have remained almost unchanged.
Despite the extreme diversity of its landscapes, grassy or wooded ridges of Aubrac and Margeride to the grandiose nudity of the Causses and the jagged crests of the Cevennes, this part of Upper Languedoc (now associated with the Occitanie Region) has kept its ancestral ways of life, up to the great upheavals of our time.
