Located at 20 km in the north of Montpellier, the Pic Saint Loup can be seen from a large part of the department of Herault, Gard and the seacoast, where its profile reminds a peak reaching towards the sky. This is one of the most beautiful natural sites, a hiking region in scrubland, outpost of the Cevennes.

The mountain is also considered as the “Sainte-Victoire” of Languedoc. It forms, with the mount of the Hortus facing it from north, a protected natural site and hosts a number of raptors.

From its sharp peak, the Pic Saint-Loup faces to the elements. A large iron cross is erected there, an observation post and the old hermitage chapel
