La Garde-Guérin (commune de Prévenchères)

In a setting not unlike certain Scottish landscapes, La Garde-Guerin looks down on the impressive Chassezac Canyon from its plateau. The village used to be a strategic site on the Régordane Way, a trade route that linked the Languedoc coast to the Massif Central ; it was attacked on several occasions but has kept its watchtower, its houses and its flagstone streets.
