Le-Pont-de-Montvert

Le-Pont-de-Montvert is one of the most charming places of the Cévennes. It was of great strategic importance in the past because of its bridge over the Tarn, on the road linking Mende and Portes. It is exactly in this place that the Camisard Revolt started. The village, which had been harshly disputed by Catholics and protestants, has a well preserved historical centre, with buildings dating back from the XVI to the XVIII century. A house is marked, next to the bridge on the Tarn: it is the place where the abbot of Cheyla was murdered, thus starting the revolt of 1702. In Le-Pont-de-Montvert there is also a protestant and a catholic church, and a clock tower. The Eco-museum of the Mont Lozère is located at the Maison du Mont Lozère, where there is also the hostel.
