The region has many standing stones, and they are truly amazing. The stones near Carnac are laid out in rows, and they go on for miles. I am always amazed when I visit Stonehenge, and this is the same. Their purpose seems unknown, but it...More

It was definitely an interesting trip out. We took a sotto train that took us past a good proportion of the stones. Also has a museum which was interesting

We walked around the site, took a few pictures and we we were lucky with the weather. Historically interesting but no need to visit more than once.

If you are into ancient history or even ancient aliens, this is a good place to visit. These are not huge stones, but the fact that they were placed here and aligned in straight lines up to 6000 years ago is impressive and humbling. You...More

If row after row after row of standing stones are your thing, you must visit here. They are fascinating to view, however unless you book on to a tour you have to stay outside of the fence which is a shame. The short film at...More

It is true you have to pay to walk among the stone. You can see them from the parking lot also (for free). There are guided walking tours about every 20 minutes, I would think they are in English on request. When I was there... More

Yes, it is true that everything has been fenced off. Probably necessary in order to protect the vegetation. So you cannot actually touch the menhirs. But when you walk along the fences, you can see everything, the alignments... More
