The cupule stone is sandstone of thin grain, measure 1.80 m at its longest dimension. We can count up to sixty isolated cupules (measure from 2 to 9 cm).
At the city hall, come back at the curve to take the trail that goes to the cupule stone. It goes down slowly and becomes flat to the stone. Return by the same way.

Around this carved rock, we can find 7 other rocks of smaller dimension, having cupules as well but no representations on them. The meaning of some representation, like the set itself, is unknown for now.
OuverturesFrom 01/01 to 31/12.

Subject to snow conditions.
