A fascinating discovery: 3,000 menhirs lined up in the heart of Carnac

Morbihan has more than 350 megalithic sites and the 7,000-year-old site of Carnac is the largest site of standing stones in the world. A UNESCO World Heritage Listing process is underway to recognise the exceptional character of the Carnac alignments, nestled in the lands of the Quiberon Bay. 

You can tour the 3 main alignment sites - Ménec, Kermario and Kerlescan - to try to unravel the mystery of the megaliths! To help you understand the alignments, go to the Maison des Mégalithes at the entrance of the Ménec site.
