La Hougue Bie (Hougue deriving from mound or heap) is a Neolithic site dating from around 3,500 BC. It is one of the largest and best preserved of its type and one of five passage graves in the Channel Islands (three in Jersey and two in Guernsey). The alignment of the entrance passage admits the sun at daybreak on the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes.
Although used for burian, it is believed that they were primarily ceremonial sites. The entrance passage is around 19 metres long and the mound above iis over 12 metres high. On top of the site are two mediaeval chapels. Alongside the site is the Jersey Archaeological Museum.
