Cairn de Gavrinis

Recommended
Built on the Isle of Gavrinis some five thousand years ago, this tumulus is one of the most interesting megalithic monuments in Brittany. It is made of stones piled on a hillock and is 6m high and 50m in diameter. A 14m-long covered gallery, made of 9 cap stones resting on 23 carved supports, leads to a small funeral chamber (2.5m x 2.5m)which is roofed in by a single granite slab resting on supports covered with carvings.
