Long Description:
The state-owned stone rows of Ty-ar-C’huré, which are under monument protection and overgrown by gorse and bracken, in a pine forest, were ceded to the city in 2008. The stones, which stretch for more than 700 meters and have several crossing lines, are a structure of prehistoric times, the purpose of which is unclear.

Chevalier de Fréminville was the first to report the existence of this facility in 1835. For him, the square (quadrilatère) formed by a double row of stones was the home of a druid. This hypothesis was inspired by the Breton name of the place. Research has stalled since then.

Nearby is the Rostudel dolmen.
