In every country and at many sites, megalithic tombs are given different names which recall countless tales and legends. On the eve of 21 September 2013, the autumnal equinox, these mysterious stories will come to life again during the “Night of Myths and Legends”. All events will take place at the same time in many European locations. At the sites where the megalithic culture has left particularly impressive monuments, the aim is to let these amazing “big stones” speak to us in an unusual way through special scenic presentations.

Visitors of all ages are invited to undertake an exciting journey to the world of the Neolithic Age. Admission to all events is free.
