There is a lot of stones, much smaller in size than Stonehenge but much more widely dispersed. Having grown up reading Asterix, this was very interesting to visit, however my children were much less impressed. They did like the tour we did on the road...More

Must have been an amazing job, even for Obelix, lol. You can best visit by foot or by bike as there are only few parking spots. And there are some hidden pubs next to walk/bike trail.

Decided to visit les alignements whilst staying near carnac. Widely advertised and having passed nearby and seen many vehicles parked I thought it must be something special. When you first get out of your car it’s like “wow” there are about 3,000 stones all aligned...More

Spent a day here. Cool place with over 3000 megaliths organised in rows. Did a tour, had a picnic, went for a walk. We found information about this place to be quite misleading. There are quite a few tour operators with websites that look very...More

We were staying next to the site and spent a pleasant couple of hours walking around the area, learning about the history surrounding the stones

Not a good idea for a hot day but otherwise a great place to learn of our history in the Megalithic period.. The sea and beaches are nearby.

This is a fantastic pre historic site. Much larger than we expected and without an explanation about who placed the many stones in order you leave the site asking yourself: why? This kind of world heritage must be protected for conning generations to go and...More

It is true you have to pay to walk among the stone. You can see them from the parking lot also (for free). There are guided walking tours about every 20 minutes, I would think they are in English on request. When I was there... More

Yes, it is true that everything has been fenced off. Probably necessary in order to protect the vegetation. So you cannot actually touch the menhirs. But when you walk along the fences, you can see everything, the alignments... More
