Carnac alignments and the Locmariaquer Megaliths

We visited the Carnac in 2009, but it’s magaliths are worth another look.

There are over 3000 menhirs or standing stones here, arranged over an area of 40 hectares and spanning 4km in length, and the largest is 20 meters tall!

The megaliths are from the Neolothic period (4900-2200 BC), these people were farmers and they raised livestock, and to this day we still don’t know the reason they erected these formations of stones.
