The Cassan Table
The Cassan Table is a huge stone table and limestone monolith located at the 16 chemin forestiers (16 forest paths) roundabout in the Forest of Cassan, known today as the carrefour de l’étoile Conti (Conti star crossroads).
Its origins probably date back to the 18th century when it was used by hunters to exhibit their trophies.
The table was mentioned in an account dating back to 1776 describing a hunting party held by Louis-François de Bourbon, Prince of Conti in honour of Prince Brunswick-Lunebourg. The scene is depicted in a painting by the artist Michel-Barthélemy Ollivier, currently displayed in the museum at the Palace of Versailles.
