MEETINGS WITH OUR ENTHUSIASTS - MEGALITHIC SITES
"If stones could talk
Necropolis of La Motte = Tumulus des mousseaux + site of the three skeletons
An eventful visit! In 2023, to coincide with the exhibition devoted to Baron Olivier de Wismes by the town of Pornic, the visit to the Tumulus des Mousseaux will be combined with the discovery of the nearby site of the three skeletons in the private property of Jacques RAVAUT and Elizabeth Donnely.

The human presence is very old in the Pays de Retz. The town of Pornic has a remarkable Neolithic site without equivalent in the Loire-Atlantique.
The town of Chauvé is not to be outdone. Patrice MORETTE-BOURNY and Serge BREMOND, members of the "Association Mégalithes en Retz" reveal the secrets of this site.

Some of these sites are listed as historic monuments.
