Legend Stones

The legend stones in Wéris aren't megaliths. Plausible they had also a special meaning in 'megalithic time'.

'Pierre Haina'

'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.
It's unknown when this tradition came into existence...

'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...
