Oppidum d'Ensérune

Recommended
At this oppidum, discover the mysterious remains of a fortified town comprising various strata of pre-Roman civilisations. The archaeological site features residential and artisans' quarters, plus a necropolis. Viewpoint indicators arranged at the four cardinal points of the oppidum describe the extensive panorama which stretches from the Cévennes to the Canigou and across the entire coastal plain, including the impressive empty Montady lake, nowadays divided into cultivated sections.
