Other Site Characteristics

Chaos de rochers ruiniformes ayant la forme d'un petit cirque rocheux situé sur le Causse du Larzac. Ce secteur est formé de nombreux rochers aux formes particulières (chaos, arches, monolithes) et présente un réseau karstique avec gouffres et avens. La végétation comprend des pelouses steppiques, des landes pâturées (ovins), des friches et des taillis à chênes pubescents et à buis. Le site est d'un intérêt paysager remarquable. Visible de l'A75, et à sa proximité immédiate, c'est un point fort de l'image du Larzac. A proximité de la RN9, le secteur est fréquenté toute l'année par des promeneurs. Le maintien de la diversité biologique dépend de la pérennité de l'activité humaine traditionnelle (paturage ovin et cultures pour l'alimentation des ovins).

4.2 Quality and importance

Trés bel ensemble de chaos de rochers ruiniformes avec gouffres et avens. Présence de nombreuses pelouses steppiques et de landes servant de parcours à moutons. Ces pelouses à stipe pennée et à fétuque durette sont riches en orchidées. Présence de buxaies et d'une flore des arènes dolomitiques. Le site est également d'une grande qualité paysagère.
