Long Description:
FR

A Court-Saint-Etienne, vous observerez une bien étrange pierre plate d’environ 4 tonnes située au pied d’un chemin creux.

D’étranges légendes lui sont attribuées dont la plus fréquente raconte que chaque soir, lorsque minuit sonne à l’église de Court, la pierre accomplit un demi-tour sur elle-même.

Les pierres qui tournent sont nombreuses en Europe occidentale. Certaines légendes affirment par ailleurs, que les druides, à force de tourner et danser autour de ces mégalithes lors de leurs cérémonies sacrées, finissaient par les faire tourner à leur tour.

In Court-Saint-Etienne, you will observe a very strange flat stone weighing around 4 tons located at the foot of a sunken path.

Strange legends are attributed to it, the most frequent of which tells that every evening, when midnight strikes at the Church of Court, the stone performs a half-turn on itself.

There are many turning stones in Western Europe. Some legends also claim that the Druids, by dint of turning and dancing around these megaliths during their sacred ceremonies, ended up making them turn in turn.
