Prémian is situated in the heart of the Somail and Caroux valleys.
At the crossroads of the transhumance routes, the commune has a landscape marked by agricultural activities on both sides of the Jaur valley, between the site of Trédos and the lake of Vesoles.
In spring, the cherry trees transform the valley into a white landscape.
Numerous footpaths allow you to explore the superb surrounding countryside in search of menhirs, Neolithic sites and high places of resistance ("Chemin de la mémoire" of Rouvials) 1st maquis of the Hérault called "Jean Grandel".
Le Chemin des Légendes (1,000 steps (GR77)) is a very famous hike for the viewpoints and the numerous waterfalls which mark out its route. The Saut de Vesoles is an artificial reservoir which supplies the hydroelectric plant, fed by the "Bureau" stream which drains the vast peat bogs between the Bane and Cabarétou passes.
The dense forests are reflected in the deep blue waters of this mountain lake.
The path around the banks allows you to discover the Saut de Vesoles, where the stream rushes into the void.
Village of culture and history, Prémian has transformed its former agricultural cooperative into a cultural and artistic activity centre ( Au fil des Arts).
