Walk: Les menhirs des Terriers

Walk: Les menhirs des Terriers

The site has at least nine stelae. The 9 stelae can be divided into two groups: six small stelae (around 2m), hewn from a gneiss that is difficult to preserve and is very sensitive to erosion and moisture, and three stelae greater than 3 m long, made from a tight grain gneiss, less sensitive to erosion.
