Protected and ecological area.

In this 82 hectare natural area , 56 hectares are open and developed for the public, and 26 hectares are in a protected area known as the ecological zone.

The origin of the name: In Occitan, "Espés" which means thick, abundant, is synonymous with "Talhada": thicket. In addition, the Latin definition of "spissus" is: tight, dense, compact. We can therefore imagine for "Espeisses" the following meaning: thick and dense thicket
