Your stay

For fans of history and archaeological discoveries, Brittany is an exceptional destination. Many of its major sites are covered on this circuit. Carnac, the emblematic archaeological site, has the largest concentration of standing stones in the world. A short distance away, the Locmariaquer peninsula, in the Gulf of Morbihan, is another fine example of the wealth of Breton pre-historic heritage with its numerous neolithic remains: monumental dolmens, dolmen cairns, tumuli, and especially, the Great Broken Menhir, the largest in the world. In Erdeven, over 190 standing stones are lined up on the site of Kerzhezo. It takes just a few minutes by boat to reach Gavrinis Island, where there is a monument that still hasn’t revealed all of its secrets. The Cairn de Gavrinis is impressive in size. The slabs of its dolmen still bear mysterious engravings that are remarkably-well preserved.

Lastly, direction Brocéliande, where the legends of King Arthur have been nurtured by this prehistoric heritage. Listen to the legend of Merlin’s tomb or the tomb of the Lady of the Lake (Viviane), and note how the stories originated around ancient megalithic vestiges.
