|Description ||There is a legend associated with the Pierres Folles, which is printed on a little sign nearby, but which I struggle to translate adequately.
Its along the lines of Gargantua playing quoits here, and destroying houses and the flocks, and causing terror in the region. One day, he crushed a dozen sheep while playing near Rosnay, and the sheepdogs got fed up, and threw two quoits back at him, which stuck in the ground here forming the Pierres Folles.|
|Or is it two quoits thrown by Gargantua at the sheepdogs, after they had attacked him ? More likely I think.|
