On the causse of Blandas


Despite its rather hostile appearance, the causse was populated very early.
The first men occupied the caves in the valleys and then used the plateaus for their herds.

With limestone rocks, they made their tools and their weapons as well as the megalithic monuments. They are found in very large numbers on the Causse de Blandas , in the form of:

- dolmens (dol: table - men: stone),

- menhirs (men: stone - hir: long),

- " stone circles ", cromlechs in Breton.

A leaflet " The circuit of the Megaliths " is available at the Tourist Office. Duration of the journey of about 1/2 day with frequent stops. It is advisable to have a vehicle.

Many pieces are exhibited at the Cévenol du Vigan Museum.
