If you are a fan of, even somewhat interested in, ancient megalithic menhirs, dolmens and "allees couvertes" and if you're anywhere near Rennes in Brittany, France, this is a must see. It's hard to find, but once there it is the most impressive structure in...More
Fascinating historic site that is well maintained and with some English information to give you a sense of the place. Nice place to enjoy the beauty away from the crowds. Bring a picnic to enjoy on the tables provided!
