La Roche Aux Fees

It is an ancient passage consists of a series of gates rather than a covered walkway. It consists of a master bedroom and an anteroom. The master bedroom itself is divided into four parts by three stones. According to sources, the structure is composed of 40 to 50 stones. The site consists of 41 main stones: 9 stones horizontal (table) with a much smaller than the others, 32 vertical stones (orthostatic) with an inclined and more important to the bedside. A stone is hand, surrounded by tree roots. The table of the entrance portico was apparently unstable until 1955. The stones weigh 40 tons heavier. The structure resembles a parallelepiped which is 19.5 m long and approximately 4.70 m wide and up to 4.10 m high. The antechamber is slightly less high than the master bedroom. The stones are flush Ordovician shale purple (not extracted). Theil Forest about 5 km is the nearest place where you can find this type of rock. Although no excavation is no proof, the structure was originally intended to be covered with a mound like most of the monuments of this type. Similarly, the fact of bones found in similar buildings, one can assume that the Roche-aux-Fees funeral had a role. Today the structure is surrounded by trees.
