Le Mont Aigoual

It was on this mountain that the famous french forestery engineer Georges Fabre undertook in the 19th century the first major anti-erosive reforestation operation in France, he was helped by the botanist Charles Flahault to identify the tree species better suited for the different parts of the massif.

Fabre, created ten arboretums to seek the tree species adapted to the different parts of the massif, notably the arboretum of the “L’Hort de Dieu” or the arboretum of the “La Foux” (located in the town of Saint Sauveur Camprieu and easily recognised by the height of its trees. Thanks to the work of Fabre and Flahault, The Aigoual has become, an important tourist site. 

The Mont Aigoual’s Weather Station

The Mont Aigoual’s weather station was built in 1894 based on the original model of a "fortified castle".

The observatory was placed under the authority of the National Meteorological Office. It is currently the last mountain weather station in France that is inhabited all year round.

Visit the site, for breathtaking views, and walk in to the weather museum for a bit of the history of meteorology.
