What a wonder to stumble upon on our tour of Bretagne. This one took a little finding with our GPS and the occasional sign giving some hint of direction. We visited midweek during spring and there was only one other car there so we had the place almost to ourselves. Signage for non-French speakers is non-existent, but if you have... More

The sheer length of this is astonishing. A sort of Stonehenge in a line. Aesy access and easy parking.
