The Rocher of Dabo

" Head out to discover this rock that boasts one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Vosges Mountains. A chapel dedicated to Pope Leo IX is perched on the summit. "

Emerging from the forest, from the top of its 664 metres, the pink sandstone rock is a unique site.

A Celtic place of worship, the rock was topped in medieval times by a powerful castle, the seat of the legendary county of Dabo. It was destroyed in 1690 on the orders of Louis XIV when the county became part of France. The present neo-Romanesque chapel is dedicated to Pope Leo IX, a local child.

The Rocher of Dabo offers an imposing view of the vast Vosges forest and the Lorraine plateau. The rock can be seen all year round, but access to the platform is restricted during the winter.
