A rich and varied natural heritage
On the edge of the Cévennes National Park, there are four remarkable sights in the Languedoc Gardois:
La Cocalière Cave, on the border with the Ardèche département, features all kinds of concretions (discs, cave pearls being formed, crystal pools...). The “diamond cave” is easy to visit. Return on the little train. Trabuc Caveor the “mystery of 100,000 soldiers”; emerald lake, play of light and colour, cascades... characterize this beautiful cave in the Cévennes near Anduze. The Abîme de Bramabiau is a stream that disappears under a limestone plateau on the edge of the Aigoual Massif and resurfaces further down with a roar. A splendid hydrological breach that can be followed underground in a fresh safe atmosphere. The Prafrance bamboo plantation appeared as a challenge to the subterranean splendours. Since 1856, the largest bamboo forest in Europe has been thriving in this part of the Cévennes in an environment of flowers and pools.
