In the pre-historical period the rocks of Montpellier-le-Vieux were used by animals and probably also by men (however this was never proved) as natural shelter. Some bones of Ursus Speleus were discovered in a cave of the Cirque de La Milliere. It proves that the site was already formed in these ancient times.

Five courses are proposed, adapted to all the pleasures: Walk, Pique-Nique or Sporting Excursion. You will never forget the Bear, the Crocodile, the Camel, the Large Sphinx, the Triumphal arch, the Eyes of the Badger… and of course the Door of Mycène, true work of architecture.

If you wish it, our small green train will lead you, without effort, in the heart of this unique site classified in the Building industries of France Heritage.
