Whilst taking a walk around Rocheneuf, we came across this unique location. Located on the waters edge, rocks have been carved into various sculptures. The site isn't very big,but is interesting and a great place to relax. Wear good shoes, and just take care on the rocks. Only €2.50 euros to visit this hidden spot.

We stayed in an appartment next to the site, so for us it was very nearby! Some nice sculptures and nice view of the see! However the site is very small, so dont expect too much! In 10 minutes you have seen it! Not worth to drive all the way, but if it is on the route, you can make... More

Les Rochers Sculptes in Rothéneuf, close to St. Malo, will probably never be a famous tourist attraction. That's not because it's a boring place -it isn't-, but it is because of the expectations of people. This wonderful site has its own history, and if you do not know about it, read a little about Abbé Fouré before you visit the... More

There is a beautifully strange story behind these sculptures, which the ticket man will tell you upon arrival. It costs 2.50eur to enter but it is a beautiful little seaside cliff filled with stone carvings and an amazing view of the ocean. It's definitely worth a visit even if you only spend 20minutes here, it's the perfect place to sit... More

This used to be open to the public for free now it costs 5 euros. Very uneven path so be wary with kids and people with balance difficulties. It is a quick visit so don' t actually go out of your way unless the idea really attracts you.

Time to get here from the center of St Malo: ~15min by car Time spent to see the sculptures: 20min Was it worth the entry fee of 2.5€? NO Would I visit it if I had known what to expect? YES The sculptures are amazing and I am glad I went to see them. Just bear in mind the site... More

A bit strange that you have to pay to see the sculptures -surely that was not the monk's intention. Either I missed something or it was to windy but it's not a a major piece or art. Moreover I think the fascination with the sculptures is the fact that one man did this. Took us 10 minutes to visit...

Around 15 minutes drive from St Malo - well worth a visit if you like to see something 'different'. In short - a site on a side of a rocky shore where a deaf & dumb monk spent 25 years carving little faces and sculptures into the rocks as a means of expression. I found the place amazing & sweet,...

It's a little difficult to find, but well worth the endeavour. Faces, animals, benches, all carved into the rock by an eccentric 19th Century prelate. It's doubtful you'd ever forget this place. A complete one-off.
