A Large Site must give off its own "spirit", captivating or soothing, grandiose or intimate, or both as in the case of the Gorges du Gardon.


While the Gorges du Gardon have just been distinguished by Unesco by obtaining the prestigious “Biosphere Reserve” label, the President of the Gard Tourist Development and Reservation Agency, Philippe Pécout declares: “Reading This announcement, I can only rejoice at this international recognition which comes to gratify our department with a new prestigious label.
The only French site honored this year, the Gorges du Gardon join the club of world biosphere reserves after the Camargue in 1977 and the Cévennes in 1984, which reconciles activities and respect for the environment.
Our exceptional, but nevertheless sensitive natural heritage will be all the more protected while offering visitors the leisure to discover and admire it. Alongside renowned sites such as Niagara Falls or Lake Baikal, the Gorges du Gardon, and their remarkable ecosystem, have found the place they deserve. "

A major geological and historic site in the South of France, the Gardon gorges massif is a landscaped Mecca with the Pont du Gard as a highlight.
