The Massif Central is an elevated region that consists of mountains and plateaux, situated in the middle of southern France. It covers 15 percent of the country.

Here, the peaks of several mountain ridges are capped in snow. These central mountains are separated from the Alps by a deep north-south cleft created by the Rhône River.
