Well worth visiting the megaliths at Carnac...especially when the Info centre s open. It has a wonderful miniature of the entire region to be able to see all these amazing alignments. Still a mystery about why they are in straight =lines, about 2000 years earlier than Stonehenge, which follows the more predictable circular ligament.
There is a fab Sunday market in the ancient centre of Carnac..produce, cheeses, baked goods, paella, clothing and flowers! Go down to Carnac Plage for lots of Breton restaurants to choose from and a lovely walk on beautiful sandy beaches

If you're in the area, then you should see these stones but I found them somewhat underwhelming. The information / presentation is lacking though clearly they are important artifacts. However excellent Crepiere in the middle! The stones at Locmariaquer where more impressive,

Acres of standing stones, quite a sight, many pictures taken. Best seen on the road train on a 50 minute trip with a short break at the centre.

We wandered around the sites from end to end fascinated by the rows of stones and menhirs. Its worth during the summer going early in the day before the crowds and coaches arrived. It is only possible to walk between the stones during certain times of the year or as part of a guided tour.
