The megalithic sites of Carnac

These stones are a group of megalithic sites around the village of Carnac. They were erected by the pre-Celtic peoples of Brittany and would have served a variety of functions, including burial places, temples and alignments related to astronomical events. The collection was built from the late Neolithic to the early Iron Age, around 4000 BC.

There are about 3000 stones whose heights vary considerably, some reaching up to 6.5 meters (Géant du Manio).
