5,000 years ago, human groups settled and marked the landscape of the Bondons' Cham by erecting megaliths, imposing stone monuments. With nearly 200 standing stones known to date, this site is one of the largest concentrations of menhirs in France. 5 km long, the trail reveals some of these monuments and offers a magnificent panorama of the Causses. A walk to discover megalithism, one of the most mysterious phenomena of the late Neolithic.
