Brittany, like Janus, has two faces, one looking inland, and the other facing the sea. Daughter of Neptune, it has a myriad of islands scattered in the Channel or the Atlantic Ocean. Only 15 of them are permanently inhabited. Your journey to Brittany should include a visit to one of them; but which one to chose?
Located in Morbihan, one of the four Britton départements, Carnac stretches its vast surface between the Morbihan Bay and the peninsula of Quiberon.
The name Carnac comes from the Celtic word “cairn” meaning butte, and numbers of hillocks emerge from an otherwise flat land: they were used as landmark for the construction of megaliths that made the site world famous. The place has been inhabited for 450 000 years, as we know from the vestige found in the village. The oldest monument found on the site was built between 5000 and 3400 BC: it is a massive burial mound apparently intended for the elite (all the discovered mortuary artefacts are on display in the Prehistoric Museum), but because of degradation, it is no longer open to the public.
