Near Fort Tourgis lies Roc à L’Epine, an ancient burial chamber dating from 4,000 BC making it Alderney's oldest attraction. Its top heavy flat stone rests on two supports. Whilst many of the islands other megalithic monuments have been largely destroyed or damaged over the last 200 years Roc à L’Epine remains well preserved and worth a visit.
Always open to the public.
