Few hidden rocks at the edge of Yverdon

The old rocks seems that they represented holy statues in the past 5.000 years ago. Or at least... read more

It's nice to take a local to somewhere they didn't know. In a small cornet of the lakeside park they have re-errected a group of standing stones - the Mehirs of Clendy. They're believed to date back to 3000BC, but in their current form only...More

It's not every day one gets to visit a human-made monument that is over 3,000 years old! Very cool to see and much more accessible than Stonehenge.

He stones are ok. I wouldn't write home about them. But the park is very nice, and the kids had fun running around and stuff. It also complete the museum visit where they talked about the stones.
