Despite its hostile appearance, the Causse was actually populated early on in history. The first people lived in caves in the valleys and used the plateaus for their animals. With the limestone rock they made their tools and weapons*, as well as megalithic monuments. There are a lot of these on the Blandas causse :

  • Dolmens (dol : table-men : rock)
  • Menhirs (men : rock-hir : long)
  • Stone circles

* You can find a number of these objects in the Cevenol museumin le Vigan.

The leaflet "Trip round the megaliths" is available from the tourist office.
