Erected in the XIth century to protect the Regordane way (today the GR 700), the Château de Portes is a combination of a medieval fortress and a renaissance bastion. It is an unique architectural exemple in Europe.
From the terrace at the top of the castle, 32 metres above ground, one can admire all the valleys, from the Lozere mount to the Alesian plain. Many cultural events are planned all year long. The monument is a real “heritage school” through its REMPART’s restoration work for volunteers.
