The main legend attached to this rock tells that Remacle and his monks built a monastery on the banks of the river Amblève. Learning the news, the devil set off with a huge rock to destroy the construction. When Remacle heard about the project, he gathered all the monks' old shoes and set off to meet the devil. He made him believe that he had worn out all those shoes since leaving the abbey. The devil, discouraged, dropped the rock that you can see below the path.
