Megalithic site of the Neolithic period (the most important megalithic group of Burgundy), these stones were erected about 5000 years ago. Frequented during the Gallo-Roman period by the Eduans, it owes its name to Epona, the Gallic goddess associated with the horse. It is composed of 7 stones, 5 of which were rectified from 1984 to 1990 at the almost exact place of their discovery. The highest stone measures 7,30 meters and its weight is estimated at 30 tons.

A complete offer on a single site: a historical monument to visit, a park to stroll, a restaurant to sustenance, a cellar to taste great wines and routes to discover the vineyards! The Château de Couches is a concentrate of the Couchois region which will make you want to go further into the village, to stroll in the alleys and to discover other sites a little further towards Autun and the Morvan.
