This is a Celtic fort dating from the second iron age, with the cultural property designation, granted 3 June 1931. It is in the Amblés Valley region, set on a granite hill. The walled enclosure covers 60 hectares. Within the fort there are the remains of dwellings as well as a sauna. There is a stone altar that stands out especially. It is thought that it would have been used for sacrifices.
