Ruin
Visit Carnac stones (Alignments de Carnac) to view the largest group of megaliths of this variety in the world. Guided tours in English will tell you about the stones erected here during the Neolithic period, probably around 3,300 BCE, but some may date back to 4,500 BCE. Eleven converging rows of menhirs (standing stones) stretch for 116,500 sq m (271,000 sq ft). Put Carnac stones and other Carnac attractions into our Carnac vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.
