Guernsey: La Table des Pions

02/06/2012

La Table des Pions, a famous Guernsey landmark where folklore tells a story of fairies dancing around in ancient times.

Actually, La Table Des Pions was built as a table for the “Pions” or officials who accompanied dignitaries on the “Chevauchee” around the Island, when members of the Royal Court would check that the Chemin du Roi – or King’s Way was clear of obstruction.

This site has beautiful views and is a walkers paradise on the southwest coast of the island.
La Table des Pions is known locally as the Fairy Ring.
