Menhir de Champ-Dolent

Menhir de Champ Dolent.

The menhir, or upright standing stone, of Champ Dolent is the largest standing stone in Brittany. It is located in a field outside the town of Dol-de-Bretagne, and is nearly 9 meters high. The stone was taken from a site 4 kilometers away.[1] It has a smaller polished stone at its base.

It has been registered as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture since 1889.[2]
