Creux ès Faies

Historic Site in Guernsey

The so-called 'Cave of the Fairies' is a prehistoric passage grave, dating back to around 3000 BC, and in use as a place of burial for at least a thousand years. Human remains were found here, along with funeral offerings of flint tools and pottery. Guernsey's more recent inhabitants believed that fairies dwelt here and danced on the headland in the moonlight.
