A solitaire rock in the middle of the Lake Izvorul Muntelui and the most well knowed from the Neamt County. The locals call it the Devils Rock (Piatra Dracului) because of some legends related to it. One legend says that the rock changes its place each night and when the devil comes to it all the fires from the nearby villages go down and all the animals become quite. Another legend speaks of a big ogre that kidnaps young girls and take them up on the rock where he changes them into strange looking rocks.
