Roc of Fougasse

Roc of Fougasse

This huge sandstone rock is so named because of the carved stone disk at its top (Fougasse means fouace in Occitan). A channel defines the disk whose diameter is about one meter. A small cup is dug in its center. This is undoubtedly a solar representation associated with a local cult. The stone itself could have served as an altar for animal sacrifices.
