48400 FLORAC TROIS RIVIERES
Florac is at the crossroads of three remarkable geological sites: Cevennes shale, Mont Lozère granite and Causses limestone. From the twelfth century, Florac is a small town. Its houses are clustered around the church and around the castle. Around 1130, Benedictine monks from the Abbey of la Chaise-Dieu built a convent. The city was once surrounded by a moat.
