Parque de los Menhires

Parque de los Menhires Review

Parque de los Menhires (Menhirs Park) is an area the size of a football field studded with hundreds of menhirs, or stone monoliths, said to be more than 2,000 years old. Before being collected in this park, most had been moved many times, obscuring their intended purpose and meaning. Some are over 6 feet tall and carved with primitive animal or human motifs, while others are just plain phallic.
