Kartena stone also known as Lauma stone (Laumės kūlis) with a foot of a cow (devil) is at the foot of Kartena hillfort, namely, in the valley of the confluence of the rivers Kūlupis and Minija. Local inhabitants have known the stone since old times. Legends say that people would see fairies washing clothes at (on) the stone at night or even during daytime and once a recruited girl saw a soldier who disappeared after she worshiped Jesus Christ. There are many natural hollows on the surface of the stone; one of the largest hollows is called Cow's foot or Devil's foot.
