About Pic Saint Loup, Montpellier
The magnificent mountain of St. Loup can be seen from everywhere in and around Montpellier. The mountain stretches between Cazevielle and Saint – Mathieu – de- Treviers. Covered with Holm oaks, kermes oaks, Aleppo pines, rock rose and many more, the summit of Pic Saint Loup houses a hermitage, an old chapel and a dodgy broken watchtower. Coming down, the visitors can find the ruins of the Montferrand Castle which has been standing there since 1108. The views of the summit extend over the cavennes and the Grand Causses. From the south, the trekkers can see the coast and the city of Montpellier. The area is quite famous for gliding as it has usually very strong wind. You can also resort to a wine tour around the estates on the mountain in order to discover this stunning and sublime landscape enveloped in the aroma of the “garrigue”. The trekkers are advised to go in the morning with food and drinks, hike to the summit, appreciate the views and go back to Cazevielle to taste its traditional beer.
