The north face of the peak is a vertiginous 150 m cliff. It used to be dominated by a wooden cross which young girls, taking their marriage vows in the year, would come and prick with a pin. A metal cross replaced it in 1911 and young men still touch the copper nail at the foot of the cross today.
The Pic Saint-Loup dominates the Montpellier scrubland from the top of its 658m. To the north, the Hortus mountain and beyond, to the northwest, the view extends to the Cévennes. To the east, the plain of Nîmes and beyond the Rhône valley, the Ventoux, the Alpilles and the Luberon.
To the southeast, the Camargue. To the south, the plain of Montpellier, the Mediterranean and its lagoon coast. Finally, to the south-west, on the horizon, the Canigou and the Corbières. A landscape so varied that it is sure to make you forget the efforts of the climb.
