Megalitische stenen in Carnac

The alignments of Carnac form the largest megalithic site in the world. They were erected around 4 500 B.C. and it is generally accepted that they had a religous role. The site is spread over 5kms and the stones are in lines, de grootste site heeft 1099 stenen en de langste is 4 m hoog.

Het is een prachtig gezicht en zeker een bezoek waard. Visit the tourist information centre before hand for an itinerary and map for the most important sites to see. In the summer months there is also a little train that takes you around the sites in a 50 minuten durende tour, it has running commentary in several languages including English. It takes about an 40 minuten rijden van hier.
