“They are just rocks!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Drove 2 hours out of our way expecting something like Stone Henge. It is nothing like it and was a waste of our time!!!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We wandered around here for a long time. You've got to be totally into standing stones to give this a 5. I'm guessing a casual tourist would give it a 3. Of course, they would be wrong. :-)

“Wonder of the world, but not wonderful visiting experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Such a shame that the modern world has been allowed to intrude on these magnificent menhirs, and that they are all fenced in so that you cannot just walk amongst them. Be aware that you can only enter with a guide, and there are not many of them a day. I suppose it is to stop fools vandalising the stones. They are magnificent but spilt up by roads and farm buildings, which really ought to be removed considering the importance of the site. Overall even in the atrocious weather in which we visited, they are worth seeing, just a shame that it is not what it could be. It is free to mooch about the road and look over the stones, but the tours cost although they seem to be randomly timed by a blackboard in the visitors centre, and are of course in French.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

The megaliths in the area were the reason for our visit and we are standing stone geeks so may be biased. We were there on one of the European Heritage Days when access to the stones was free, both financially and in terms of access. But there is so much more than just these alignments in Carnac for the casual observer. Just outside Erdeven there is a site just as riveting without any fences at all...

“Made me contemplate .....”

Why? How? Our ancestors must have been intelligent & complex individuals. Very lovely to look, especially at sun down.
