Carnac is a commune beside the Gulf of Morbihan on the south coast of Brittany in the Morbihan department in north-western France.Its inhabitants are called Carnacois in French. Carnac is renowned for the Carnac stones - one of the most extensive Neolithic menhir collections in the world - as well as its beaches, which are popular with tourists.Located on a narrow peninsula halfway between the medieval town Vannes and the seaside resort Quiberon, Carnac is split into two centres - Carnac-Ville and Carnac-Plage . In total there are five beaches, including la Grande Plage, and further to the east, Plage Men Dû and Beaumer.Standing stonesCarnac is famous as the site of more than 10,000 Neolithic standing stones, also known as menhirs. The stones were hewn from local rock and erected by the pre-Celtic people of Brittany. Local tradition claims that the reason they stand in such perfectly straight lines is that they are a Roman legion turned to stone by Pope Cornelius.
