  • One hour is enough, the plant is impressive but unfortunately sparse information. When the weather sure worth a visit

  • We did the tour without a guide. Lack us probably some information about the place and its use, but we were still impressed by the construction, which dates back thousands of years. The view around the Cairn is also worth a visit.

  • Access to this site was once free. Today it's too expensive. If we miss the start of the tour you learn nothing because the succinct guide given to the entry tells us nothing. He talks about sculptures... There is no burial chambers... that we do not see. The architecture is interesting. The view of the beautiful Bay. But assuming it was largely the impression of being "have"

  • Huge prehistoric cairn with a couple of open chambers, in a beautiful location. Impressive.
  • Filthy! Its almost like cavemen were living in there!
  • Beautiful mound with piece of history, alongside Carnac and Locmariaquer to the big 3 of Brittany. There is a coastal hiking trail (GR34) along, nice to have a piece of to run on this peninsula.

  • The visit is quick and a bit expensive for the time spent, but it is a heritage that's worth the look.

  • A splendid archaeological evidence. The view on the Bay of Morlaix is extraordinary. The tour is very interesting.
