Defensive moat. At the bottom of the natural moat there is an artificial moat with water. The photograph does not convey what kind of bias, but I can say that I did not dare to go down - I was afraid for the camera.

It is a pity I did not know about the megalithic labyrinth nearby - I would definitely have turned it up (I only saw this once - on the Solovetsky Islands ).
