Collias
Collias, located on the left bank of the Gardon, was founded by the Greeks. Successive occupants have left signs : caves occupied in the Paleolithic period, Roman ruins and later pagan and Paleo-Christian remains in the listed site called the Hermitage. The virtually untouched landscapes of the Gardon gorges and the immense plateaux on either side are a paradise for walkers and for all types of river based activities. Collias was a major silk production centre until the 19th century. It is also home to the Picholine olive.
