Le mont Beuvray, au coeur du Morvan

in Glux-en-Glenne
  • With its 821 m of altitude, the mount Beuvray is not the highest point of the Morvan massif. However, its compact mass can be seen from very far away. It is understandable that the Eduens, a Gallic people, established their capital Bibracte there in the 2nd century B.C. Once inhabited, cultivated and domesticated, it is now almost entirely covered by a preserved forest, including a magnificent beech grove, which mainly covers its summit.

    With its 821 m of altitude, the mount Beuvray is not the highest point of the Morvan massif. However, its compact mass can be seen from very far away. It is understandable that the Eduens, a Gallic people, established their capital Bibracte there in the 2nd century B.C. Once inhabited, cultivated and domesticated, it is now almost entirely covered by a preserved forest, including a magnificent beech grove, which mainly covers its summit. This forest is populated by ghostly trees. These are "queules", beech trees that were once braided to prevent cattle from escaping and to delimit the agricultural plots. Hours of walking or strolling are possible, through the trees and archaeological excavations. For the more courageous, it is possible to take the long-distance path that crosses it. From the top of Mount Beuvray, under a light breeze, you can admire a breathtaking panorama of the Morvan and, in good weather, make a friendly salute to Mont Blanc..
