“very interesting to ponder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

The stones are from 4bc, and there are thousands of them. How long you are going to spend looking at them depends on your imagination and interest in this peroid. Either way, they are worth a visit, and Carnac itself is a lovely place.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Really this is a spot you must see if you are anywhere close. These are standing stones which apparently predate the pyramids, Stonehenge and similar structures. Pretty exceptional.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

These standing stones are spectacular in a different way to Stonehenge. There are so many and they go on for miles. I would love to go again so that I could take one of the guided tours and walk amongst them.

“Amazing and eerie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

First of all, it's not Disneyland, so if you are the type that needs amusement and entertainment, you should look elsewhere. For those fascinated by human history, this is a pretty cool place. The rocks are enormous, and the lines are amazingly straight and stretch on forever. I think you can only enter with a tour group, but the day we went they had opened the gate and allowed us to wander around. It's a really eerier vibe and incredible that they were able to erect these stones (for what reason??) as they did.

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