Mercantour National Park



Mercantour National Park is one of 9 national parks in France and spans over 264 square miles and contains more than two thousand species of plants and a wide variety of animals, since it was created in the late 1970s. The landscape is made up of several valleys and 28 villages, many containing ancient murals, altars and petroglyphs dating back to the Bronze age.

The park itself contains hundreds of walking paths which, during the summer months, is the big draw here as the views are spectacular and it gives visitors the opportunity to see the wildlife up close and personal. Mercantour is filled with several different types of mountain goat roaming the hills, wild boar, Red and Roe deer, hares, rabbits, buzzards, eagles and even wolves, who inhabited the park back in the 90s from Italy.
