MENHIR DE MALVES EN MINERVOIS

11600 MALVES-EN-MINERVOIS

Regarding

The menhirs are rarer than the dolmens in the Minervois. The massive Menhir of Malves, on the D38, just north of Malves en Minervois, easoly reaches three times the height of a man, and probably extends also of the same length in the ground to be able to remain vertical since thousands of years.
It stands on a flat hill which must have been a particularly important place. A meeting place for the inhabitants of the mountains and the valley, perhaps?
