The legend stones in Wéris aren't megaliths. Plausible they had also a special meaning in 'megalithic time'.
'Pierre Haina' is a natural rock likely once shaped by human. This stone was obviously an important sight point in the megalithic system at Wéris. From this point you have a beautiful sight on the wide area. The stone is also known as "Menhir Blanc" (White Standing Stone).
In former times the stones was chalked white every year on the
spring-equinox-day. Now it only happens sporadic.
Pierre Haina who 'guards' the area, thanks to the striking white colour good visible from far.
'Lit du Diable', The Devil's Bed, situated a bit lower than Pierre Haina. This is also a natural rock, also subject of several legends...
'Pas-Bayard', a settlement near Oppagne owns a third legend stone. This is a stone whit a large and deep groove.
Some nice folktales are telling about the legend stones. See website "weris-info" (link on next page)
