3. Allées-couvertes de Saint-Eugène (Aude)
In the woods NNW of Russol, this very large scheduled
monument is not signposted
because of a hostile land-owner - who cannot, however, legally prevent access.
It has been restored in the traditional drastic French
(compare the fantasy-walls of nearby Carcassonne),
but is certainly worth a detour.
It is built on a huge platform, some of which is natural.
The first photo shows the entrance - and the restored dry-walling.
The passage from the rear.

On Google Earth the tomb looks like the tip of a penis poking through the earth!
