PostSubject: Carnac & Morbihan: Megaliths & Sacred Sites    Sun May 29, 2011 10:19 pm

Brittany in the far NW corner of France is a rugged promontory facing the Atlantic ocean.
The Morbihan area is famous for the megalithic stone rows at Carnac and for the great menhir at Locmariaquer.
However there are many more extravagant megalithic sites in the area - indeed the whole region must once have been an immense ceremonial and cultural centre.
The immense tumulus at Gavrinis is one of the most well-preserved prehistoric structures in Europe, with many carved motifs on the huge interior orthostats.
Most other tumuli are smaller and in varying degrees of completeness, but all are impressive.
Here are to be found megalithic complexes without equal: tumuli, dolmens and covered alleys, as well as menhirs, stone rows, circles, quadrangles and ovals.
The stone rows stretch for 5 kilometers E-W from Erdeven to Carnac and on to La Trinité, in four sections - each with a "cromlech" (a stone circle or quadrangle) at it's eastern end.
The saints are an important part of the Breton culture and may be encountered in many guises.
