Tourist sites and museums

This dolmen on the top of the hill Ranc de Guilhaumet (336 metres high), right in the middle of the typical garrigue, is also called « the Giant’s tomb ». Long ago, people used to believe that dolmens were built by giants, fairies or elves.

The chamber of this collective tomb from the Neolithic times, has a trapezoidal shape, with 3 metre long limestones. It was probably co-vered by a table stone. The whole tomb is protected by a pile of stones, 20 metres in diameter, known as a tumulus. The tomb was probably meant to be seen in the distance.
