Contrary to many ideas, dolmens and standing stones in France are not limited to Brittany. Also in the Vendée, the surroundings of Paris, Corsica, the Provence and the south of the country many megalithic remains are found. Next to dolmen (burial sites), menhirs (standing stones) and cromlechs (stone circles), the statue-dolmen (standing stones with a face or other human characteristics) is typical for the Languedoc region.
