Located in a very picturesque setting overlooking the southern coast of the Rhuys Penninsula jutting out into the Gulf of Morbihan, the site is fronted by a visitor’s center which functions more as a ticket counter and gift/souvenir shop rather than as an informative, introductory...More

You get many points of view from this area. A lot to think about. I guess age matters if you do not follow history. This whole area makes one think about time and love of country.

Though Carnac is considered with Stonehenge the must for megaliths I think that the presqu'île de Rhuys on the east side of golfe du Morbihan (Carnac is west of the entrance of the the golfe) offers a unique variety of monuments and megaliths. Arzon, Sarzeau...More

We diverted to Port Cruesty where first there was a marina. Then just up the hill there was the Petit Mont where there was a good viewpoint. What we had not realised, though it was clearly marked was that it was a 900m walk. But...More

We walked from our hotel and it is about 15 minutes to get to the bunker. It took about 15 minutes to get through each of the areas but definitely worth a quick visit. Our local guide, Arnelle, gave us some great information about the...More

The hike to the cairn was an easy trek and the view at the top was spectacular. Looking at the Atlantic Ocean around to the Port du Crouesty and the Golfe du Morbihan one could understand why the Germans took over these 4600 year old...More

This is as old as the Pyramids and is a source of wonder - how did the ancient builders line it up with the sun? I wonder how the Nazis could vandalise such an incredible building, but visiting the bunker is interesting too. The tour...More
