Discover the surroundings

A treasure with a backdrop of greenery and limestone cliffs, the Millau Viaduct blends perfectly into the landscape.
Nestled in the heart of the Grands Causses Regional Natural Park, it provides a striking contrast between modernity and ancestral customs. In 2011, UNESCO added the Causses and the Cévennes to the World Heritage List. The Millau Viaduct then became one of the gateways to this landscape shaped by Mediterranean agro-pastoralism.
