La Roche aux Fées

The megalithic monuments of La Roche-aux-Fées was built during the 3rd millenium BC and is one of the most important dolmens in France. How and why it was built has still not been determined; although folklore has it that fairies built it overnight, hence the name "The rock of the Fairies."


The monument is 64 feet long and 13 feet high,
and consists of 41 stones ~ some of which weigh 45 tons.


An enchanting walk inside reveals the four interior chambers.
