Causse de Sauveterre is one of the typical limestone plateaus of the Massif Central. Large river gorges cut through the plateaus such as the Tarn. Causse is an Occitan word meaning “limestone plateau”. The gorges cut into the plateaus form the most spectacular part. But you should also have a look at the top of the gorges and check out the completely different landscape. You will notice it has a complex pattern of fertile land with deep soil and less fertile pieces of land, with rocky limesonte patches with shallow or no soil. The fertile pieces of land are most of the time linked to (closed) depressions, such as dolina’s.

A 3D version of the topographic map of the areas of the causses near the Cévennes. You can clearly see the big blocks of limestone cut by the gorges. To the east, you see a very different landscape, diescted by many valleys. This coincides with the schists of the Cévennes.

View of how the gorge cuts the “causse” and creates a very different landscape.
