In Morbihan, more than 550 megalithic sites have been identified. The most famous in the region at an age of 7000 years, the megalithic site in Carnac stands as a key site in the study of European prehistory. It has been classed as a “Monument Historique” since 1889.
Nestled in the south of Morbihan, the menhirs of Carnac stand out for their incredible alignment. Built between the 5th and 3rd millennium BC, the two main sites (Ménec and Kermario) alone count nearly 3000 menhirs. These alignments stretch across nearly 4 kilometres! Menhirs, dolmens, tumuli, and other remnants stand as a testament to Neolithic architecture.
