Cairn Du Petit Mont, Arzon

#2 of 13 in Things to do in Arzon
As ancient as the Pyramids of Giza, Cairn Du Petit Mont is a Neolithic structure built to line up with the sun. Erected in three phases, the most ancient cairn dates to 4,500 BCE and the most recent was built around 2,000 BCE. Visit the megalithic architecture and go inside the dolmens to view huge granite blocks with archaic engravings of snakes, axes, signs, and various motifs. You can explore on your own, attend a guided tour in English, or join an educational workshop.

  • The tour is more than necessary to best enjoy this historical site. Very good explanations and a site not to be missed!

  • do not hesitate to go to the edge of the small mount because first place is very nice and then it's really the story that awaits us because should not forget that it is 6000 years on this site and finally World War 2 with the German bunker which the restoration was to make accessible inside. So we are on a path of culture and it's always interesting for young and old

  • Nice Cairn, lovely walk to the monument. Bit small parking
  • The flight! €7 visit per adult when and more we n could visit only a dolmen since the second we were kindly invited to let the group visit with the guide to pass as a priority. So we were 3 adults + 2 children (5 years old and a 7 month old baby) a have sat in front of the dolmen without being able to go for 20 min (with baby we have of the leave). Why not explain to people without a guide to do the reverse path that borrow by the group to avoid being blocked?

  • As the appearance of the site worth a visit, as a view proposed us at the top of the Cairn; as the Interior is very poorly highlighted: the rock carvings are poorly lit and are barely visible. It's a shame, sometimes the engraved stones are even not illuminated... Disappointing!
