  Menhirs not far from Camaret
by bzh

Brittany is very famous for its standing stones that date from the Celt period. Monoliths come mainly in two forms. The menhir is literally a standing stone. The dolmen is a stone table (the word dolmen comes from the Breton words for table and stone). The most famous location is Carnac but such monoliths can be seen all over the region.
