MERCANTOUR (Roya Bévéra)
Flore: Unique in Europe
This is the only French national park containing all levels of vegetation : from Mediterranean vegetation (holm oak, olive tree, hop-hornbeam) to rhododendron moors and up to alpine meadows at more than 2500 meters, whilst passing through fir, spruce, mountain pine, arolla pine and especially larch forests.
Of the 4200 plant species which exist in France, more than 2000 of them are present in the Mercantour National Park, including around 40 endemic species (found nowhere else). The springtime is a veritable symphony of colours.
