Gévaudan wolves Gévaudan wolf park
At Sainte-Lucie in the Lozère, over 100 wolves live in semi-captivity. The legend-filled Gévaudan is a fitting home for these wolves, who live in their natural wooded habitat in a park covering several hectares.

Roc des Hourtous panorama
A viewpoint over one of the most grandiose sections of the gorges, from the hamlet of Les Angles to the Cirque des Baumes.
   
Pas de Soucy
One of the key sites in the Tarn gorges was probably brought about by an earthquake. There is a lookout point on "Roque Sourde", giving a grandiose view over the torrential waters below. Legend tells us that Saint Enimie fought with the Drac, or Satan, here.
