Chapelle de Notre Dame de Lorette

Cromlech (France and Brittany)


Near le Quillio by the neat and soul-less 19th century chapel of Notre Dame de la Lorette are 27 standing stones, possibly a cromlech (in the French sense of that word) that is, a horseshoe.

Today the fine stones of quartz and schist appear to be arranged in two parallel lines, 20ms long and 8ms wide, I'm guessing.

The strange juxtaposition of these ancient unhewn and rough stones against cloyingly sweet and nauseating tributes in the chapel to the 'miracles' performed by the virgin is very peculiar.
