This enormous Megalithic sandstone chamber tomb is estimated to be about 5,000 years old.

It is the largest dolmen in France and the second largest in Europe, after the Brownshill Dolmen in County Carlow, Ireland. More than 10,000 dolmens and standing stones can be found in France, but this may be the only one located in the back garden of a cafe.
