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).

Carnac stones reviews
Walking on a beautifully landscaped path along the prehistoric stones, so many stones, as far as you can see! There is a long walking route along all prehistoric elements. Do it! more »
Let's face it, most people nowadays only stop here because they want to take a selfie with some stones behind their back. I liked it for 15 minutes or so. more »
Can't walk amongst the stones till October so limited to walking a busy main road around the site
Really amazing and interesting. Had a really great day out walking through all the alignments.
