MEGALITHES OF THE PENINSULA

Kerbourgnec
56510 ST PIERRE QUIBERON
A large, semi-circular megalithic enclosure.
The Kerbourgnec menhir enclosure, commonly known as a “cromlec’h”, is a group of 42 standing stones arranged facing east in an arc.
The group is connected to the Kerbourgnec alignments, located 50m to the north-east.
The enclosure has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1889.


Menhir alignments extending out to sea.
The Kerbourgnec menhir alignments are rows of standing stones extending over a distance of some thirty metres. The group was restored a long time ago and appears to end in the middle of houses built in the early twentieth century; however, research conducted by Serge Cassen showed that the site must have also included ten parallel rows extending further eastwards. As the sea level has risen since the Neolithic Era, parts of these rows are now under water.
Like the megalithic enclosure, the alignments were listed as a Historic Monument in 1889.
