  • It is not that far from Carnac where I was to spend the night I decided to make this deviation to see another site different from the Carnac stones. Visiting for the menhir BRISA (broken into 4 pieces), the mound of Er Grah and dolmen delal Table des Marchand.

  • A small site but well presented, made even better by the excellent introductory film which is a must see! For once a very good English soundtrack and some excellent graphics bring the whole subject ni...  more »
  • If you like the old stones, no problem. The little film that welcomes you explain well the history of this site. The site is well maintained. However, for my taste, the price is too high for what there is to see. € 6 per adult (free for the - 18) but €4 would be sufficient. Some external plates are there to remind the elements of the film. An exhibition of reproductions of engravings of era full a little everything. A little quick tour for a little too high a cost. I stand by my "hunger".

  • Of course, some will say it's 6 euros entry to see that 3 megaliths as can be read on some of the comments. Indeed without participating in the tour that even 1 hour, the visit can be boring. The tour takes place once per hour and is very interesting, the guide is dynamic and has humor. The explanations are interesting and we understand the differences of the megaliths and why the megaliths of Brittany are all interrelated. End-of-tour there is a workshop to make a musical instrument terracotta as in the Neolithic era. For prices:-26 years = free adult = 6 euro the visit is adapted to people with disabilities on booking. There are discounts also if you visited the other megaliths of Brittany which are in partnership.
