Carnac menhirs de Kermario

The Carnac stones are an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the French village of Carnac, in Brittany, consisting of alignments of more than 3,000 prehistoric standing granite stones (menhirs). This is the largest such collection in the world. Most of the stones were erected at some stage during the Neolithic period, probably during the 4th Millenium BC, but some may date to as old as 4500 BC. The site is registered on the UNESCO World Heritage indicative list since 1991
