Margeride in Lozère
Margeride, the largest granite massif in Europe is an area with many faces in the north-east of Lozère.
Margeride, the largest range of granite hills in Europe
A land of traditions and unspoilt villages, forest and lakes, farms and good food, it is a destination which offers each visitor a unique experience. It is also a region steeped in history, its past indelibly marked by the tragic episode of the notorious Beast of Gévaudan between 1764 and 1767. A trip to Margeride is a journey full of emotion !
Margeride – a great place for heritage fans
Heritage fans can enjoy a journey back to the Middle Ages in the village of Malzieu-Ville with its charming ramparts, towers and cobbled streets. The leap back in time is even more apparent in May when the village holds a medieval fete. All the inhabitants dress in period costume as knights, courtly ladies and troubadours and a great time is had by all ! Not far from the village, the Tour d’Apcher, an 18m high keep, offers splendid panoramic views of the Margeride hills.
Continue your heritage adventure at Saint-Alban-sur-Limagnole to admire its Renaissance-style château, walk a short way along the Pilgrim Way to Santiago de Compostela and learn even more about Margeride at the amazing Scénovision son-et-lumière show. Further to the east, make a date at the Saturday morning open air market at Langogne, one of the largest in Lozère. While you are there, pop in to the Filature des Calquières, the oldest woollen mill in France !
