The Trembling Rock

Another achievement of the local Heritage Club (Bize Patrimoine) has been the clearing of the undergrowth around an interesting landmark. It’s known locally in the Occitan language as “Roc Trembla├»re”.

According to the legend, if single girls walk around the rock three times on either the 24th June or the 24th December, they will meet the person they will marry within a year. And yes, the rock is supposed to tremble!

And this is where we went on our walk today – much more pleasant now that the clearing has been undertaken, and you don’t need to fight your way through the undergrowth…

I didn't notice anyone going around more than once.
