The size is interesting that's all. You will see many others more deeply in North and south Bretagne, but if you are there why not ?

We are astonished by that achievements of modern man but man in an earlier time showed skill, initiative and sheer hard work in what they achieved. This monolith is over 9 metres tall. How did they achieve moving it here. We would struggle today to do so.

Nice break during a long day in the car. There are picnic tables, so if you feel like spending an hour or so, this would be a good place for lunch or to sprawl on the grass.

This is more than worth 10 minutes of your time, and a short diversion off the main road from Dol to Combourg. It is a massive Menhir, a long way from the main Carnac types (100 miles away). Ancient, wonderful, and free to visit and park. You can even have a picnic here at one of the convenient tables. Go and imagine Obelix carrying it into place with Asterix pestering him. Then consider it was already ancient when the Celts turned up.

The good thing is there is no charge for this attraction.It is very big and good to get a picture with someone stood next to it,only takes 5 minuets to see. The picnic area is nice with plenty of tables .It would be nice if there was some English translation of how it got there, but only French .

Even those with little interest in history will enjoy a brief break to check out this prehistoric monolith.

Please be forewarned that all of these Neolithic sites featuring megaliths are not designed for the physically challenged. There are virtually no paved walk ways, no ramps, and no elevators. We had a rented car and got to this site using our GPS. We reached the site and parked the car on the side of the road as close to the farmer’s field as possible because there is no car park. The site is open and free. The menhir, measuring 31 feet in height, is still standing in the middle of an open field. We were the only tourists on the site.
There is wonderful signage but in French that recounts how the Devil was upset with a decision to erect a church in the vicinity of the menhir. Another take relates a tale of two brothers, as rivals, fought each other one on one for supremacy, and that the battle was miraculously stopped when the menhir suddenly appeared and separated both. And then again, legend maintains that each time a citizen of the area dies, the menhir commemorates the death by sinking into the ground a little bit. In time, with an accumulation of deaths, the menhir will completely sink into the ground and the world will end with the Last Judgement.

Great to see and enjoyed the connection with the nearby cathedral, albeit a legend. We enjoyed the visit to the area.

Not far off the main road with a small lay-by car park. Very impressive up close and lots of good photo opportunities. Definitely Worth a visit if in the area.

A massive standing stone looming up from the flat fields around it that you are allowed to walk right up to and touch.

An amazing sight and wonderful to be able to touch the stone. Our children loved trying to measure the stone, talking about how it got there, why it may have been put there, how it kept standing up, etc.

A slight detour off the main road through Dol and well worth a visit.
