Halliggye Fogou

UK»England»Cornwall»Halliggye Fogou

Halliggye Fogou: Roofed and walled in stone, this complex of passages is the largest and best-preserved of several mysterious underground tunnels associated with Cornish Iron Age settlements. The purpose of such 'fogous' - a Cornish-language word meaning 'cave' - is unknown. Refuges, storage chambers or ritual shrines have all been suggested.


Free entry to the fogou. Entry to the rest of the Trelowarren Estate is charged.
