View on map

In Kuusalu, just by Peterburi Road, lies a huge stone – St. Lawrence’s Stone, or the Path Stone. It is an ancient cult stone but most likely also marked the border between Kuusalu Church and Kolga Monastery during the middle ages. On the church side of the stone, you can now see the image of the burning grate or the fire tongs and a cross cut into the stone as a symbol of St. Lawrence – according to the legend, the martyr was tortured to death on a burning grate. On the Kolga side of the stone, you can see the emblem of the monastery (two crossed abbot’s crosiers) cut into the stone.

The girth of the stone is 10.2 m.

St. Lawrence used to be one of the most popular patron saints of the people.

Камень

Жили рядом в Виинисту, поэтому решили заехать на него посмотреть. Если честно ничего особенного, поэтому кончено же надо знать его историю и чем он так знаменателен. А вообще - камень как камень...
