#1 of 19 in Historic Sites in Morbihan
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).

    There are several sites to visit (the one next to the other) but behind the barriers separating us from the menhirs. The site lacks explanatory panels. The explanations can be provided when you take the guided tour (?). The sites are unfortunately along the same routes if it there are a few paths in forests to go between some sites. Don't forget to ride height for good see alignments. To see a menhir, go in Locmariaquer.

    alignments of Carnac are impressive by the amount, if not, we look at them from a distance behind a fence, because you pay for approaching. A photo to zoom and presto! and hop direction Erdeiven; here! There is, of the megaliths in less quantity, but where you can make a direct photo at the foot

    Interesting site. To enter the grounds of the site, a guide is mandatory. The guide was very professional but it has failed to keep our attention. A lot of why but few answers to our departure... of course to see absolutely, it's the largest menhir in the world site!
