Le Roc au Chien
When you arrive at the spa you might notice a large cliff with fallen rocks below it. This is called “Le Roc au Chien” or “Dog Rock” and is named after two legends.
The first tells the story of a careless child who was playing too close to the edge and fell into a crevasse. Fortunately, the child’s dog had followed, and thanks to its barking, the child was found and rescued. When the dog died, it was buried on the site and the location was known as “Dog Rock” in recognition and remembrance.
The second legend tells of an evil lord who brutalised a whole convent of nuns on the eve of his wedding. Of course, the wrath of God descended upon him and he was transformed into a monster with a dog’s head and tiger’s paws before being petrified in the rock.
