castle of florac

The Chateau de Florac was originally built in the 13th century and rebuilt in the 17th century. It originally belonged to the Barony of Anduze and passed through a number of feudal families. It was entirely rebuilt in 1652 after the Wars of Religion.
During the French Revolution, the castle was turned into a "salt loft" for storing salt. It was used as a prison in the 19th century. Since 1976, the castle has been the headquarters of the Cevennes National Park, who restored it.
