  Standing Stones
by freya_heaven

I love Carnac, I have so many memories of the times I have visited here. Its a lovely area, with wonderful beaches, megaliths. Its very flat area so its ideal for hiring bikes & exploring

The standing Stones (Megaliths) are to have believed to have stood at Carnac for between 4 to 7,000 years.
Over 3000 of them are placed in rows & obviously meant something very important at the time they were erected.

The first couple of times I visited Carnac you used to be able to walk around them & even climb on them, but now they have understandably been fenced off and you you only see them from a distance.
