The silkworm is the place where were once bred silkworms for the production of the fabric that made the wealth and fame of the Cevennes until the early twentieth century. Find the original production conditions. Here we find the typical architecture of these places of production as well as the methods and tools that were used for several generations. The influence of sericulture extended beyond the walls of this traditional building. All around were planted muliers used for food worms, making one of the most popular trees of the Cevennes after the chestnut. You have to walk a small path of 700 meters between the car park and the site. Located in the heart of the silkworm, a colony of small rhinos run through the night these spaces where alternate trees and meadows. A video device (camera and screen) allows the public to observe and better understand the life of these unknown bats.
