 La Couvertoirade : One of the most beautiful villages in France.

In the middle of the austere Causse, apparently uninhabited, the village of La Couvertoirade appears like an unreal dream, coming from the past.How amazing to discover a village and its still intact 15th century walls.The houses,the bread oven, the church and the Templar château. Outside the walls, the largest and most beautiful stone lined natural pond of the Larzac.

The Knights Templar and Hospitaller

The Knights Templar were given the land and therefore took possession of the Larzac plateau in the 12th century. The revenue served to maintain the Knights in the Holly Land. In order to ensure the security of the local inhabitants, they created the commandry of Sainte-Eulalie de Cernon, La Cavalerie, La Couvertoirade and Le Viala du Pas de Jaux; these villages which the Hospitaller Knights inherited during the suppression of the Order of the Knights Templar by the Pope in 1312 were fortified in the 15th century. The Hospitaller Knights ensured their management for five centuries. ( Read more )
