Tumulus du Puy Taillé

The mound is not dated but it would probably have served as a landmark during one of the wars of religion. It would shelter corpses or even chests with difficult access. But what intrigues the most is the legend about it under this mound would hide a horse or a statue of the Virgin in gold but nobody has ever found one of these objects. It would be the oldest Neolithic monument named but not recognized in the Deux-Sèvres. The tumulus was classified as a Historic Monument in 1970.
