Après vous être garé, vous entrez dans la forêt et vous emprunterez le chemin sur votre gauche balisé en rouge et blanc, d'une part et en bleu et jaune d'autre part.



Encore un petit effort, vous allez y arriver...

Cette vierge fut construite à la fonderie de Fallon. Elle fut installée au sommet de la Motte de Grammont qui culmine à 520 mètres. A l’âge du fer, la Motte était une place forte et servait d’oppidium. La légende raconte que les jeunes gens des villages alentours s’amusaient à faire pivoter la statue afin qu’elle regarde en direction de leurs villages. Choqué, le curé fit cesser ce jeu. Il déclara que la vierge avait les pieds posés sur Grammont, qu’elle regardait en direction de Fallon, que sa main droite était tendue vers Mélecey et que la gauche approchait Bournois.


*** English version *** (Google Traduction)



Once you have parked, you enter the forest and you will take the path on your left marked in red and white on one side and blue and yellow on the other.

This blank was built at the foundry Fallon. She was placed on top of La Motte de Grammont, which rises to 520 meters. In the Iron Age, La Motte was a fortress and served as oppidium.

Legend has it that young people in the villages around fun to rotate the statue so that it looks towards their villages. Shocked, the priest put a stop to this game. He said that the Virgin had feet on Grammont, that she looked in the direction of Fallon, that his right hand was extended toward Mélecey and his left hand drew Bournois.
