Amazing nature and human achievements Visits & Tourist sites

The many visits to be enjoyed during your stay are sure to delight both your eyes and your taste buds.

Gaze up at the sky 

Because to appreciate Millau viaduct along with the birds of prey at the 'Maison des Vautours' you have to look up! These viewing areas, perched up high and full of discoveries, allow you to admire both modern architecture and the natural world. At the vulture visitor centre everything makes for a really informative experience.

Look carefully

Can you spot the amber iris of the Gévaudan wolves in the middle of the park that’s reserved just for them?
From the smallest to the largest, the insects at Micropolis and the bison at the Margeride Reserve are sure to catch your eye and reveal all their secrets.

Enjoy a view underground

Aven Armand and Dargilan are caves of impressive dimensions that nature has formed over the years. A visit to these caves is the chance to go down into the rock where you get to see fascinating geological formations.
Man has been inspired by what nature creates underground. The caves in Roquefort, made up of an intricate and elaborate network of underground chambers, produce the characterful cheese of the same name.

Simply delicious

Luckily, the activities on offer in our region are great for getting a little exercise, and the walks you can enjoy here are perfect when you need to digest. Because you won't be able to resist tasting sessions for sampling our culinary heritage.
Cheese in all its forms, artisan charcuterie, local meat, and various other specialities pair perfectly with drinks produced according to regional traditions.
