At 5 metres high, it is the largest menhir in the Haute-Vienne. You will have to take a nice walk in the middle of the wilderness before you reach it. Legend has it that the person who manages to throw a stone onto the ledge halfway up the menhir is promised a wedding within the year.

Follow in the footsteps of Oradour-sur-Glane
Follow in the footsteps of your ancestors by visiting the martyred village of Oradour-sur-Glane, near Cieux. This place of memory shows the total disappearance of the hamlet and its inhabitants during the Second World War.
Everything was left as such: ruins of houses, an abandoned church and deserted streets. This visit leaves no one indifferent to the chaos of French history.
