Culhat La lanterne des morts

    Construites pour la plupart aux environs du XII ème siècle, on pense que ces petites tours creuses, surmontées d'un pavillon ajouré et dans lequel on hissait au crépuscule une lampe allumée, jouaient le rôle d'une sorte de phare destiné à guider les âmes des disparus vers le repos éternel. La présence d'une lanterne, si elle n'a pas été déplacée, peut matérialiser alors l'emplacement d'un ancien lieu de sépulture aujourd'hui oublié.

    Built mostly around the twelfth century, it is believed that these small hollow towers, topped by a pavilion in which perforated and hoisted a light on at dusk, acted as a sort of beacon to guide the souls missing to the eternal rest. The presence of a lantern, though it has not moved, can materialize then the site of an ancient burial ground is now forgotten.
