Site des mégalithes de Locmariaquer

Major site of the Armorican Neolithic gathering three monuments.

This Neolithic site features three large megaliths which have become symbols of Brittany: the Grand Menhir brisé, the Dolmen de la Table des Marchand and the Tumulus d'Er Grah de Locmariaquer, dating back to between 4700 and 3800 BC.
The Grand Menhir Brisé is a huge, broken granite block and is the largest known stele in Europe. The Tumulus d’Er-Grah and the Dolmen de la Table des Marchand provide an exceptional insight into the ancient funeral rites practised in Brittany at the time. A gallery leads to the underground burial chamber and some of the walls have been engraved with hieroglyphics.
The tour is an ideal introduction to the architecture and civilisation of the megalithic age, in a stunning natural environment with superb views of the Golfe du Morbihan.
