From Gévaudan to Lozère…

The term Gévaudanrefers to the former royal province, replaced during the French Revolution by the department of the Lozère.

Geographically, Lozère has kept almost the same contours.
The canton of Saugues (in the North) which belonged to Gévaudan, was attached to the department of Haute-Loire after the French revolution. On the other hand, the cantons of Meyrueis and Villefort, which did not belong to the former province, were attached to the department of Lozère.

It is a land of myths and legends where stories have often left their mark on history.
