Come grow in the field...

Les Pierres Jaumâtres

 

The extraordinary granite stones.

A beautiful walk through the forest will find you at the top of Mount Barlot where the stones rest, where you'll also have panoramic views of the Berry and the Valley of Boussac.

 

For many centuries visitors have tried to discover the history of these stones but still to this day the mystery of their origin remains.

 

No entry fee.
