With more than 4. 000 stones, it’s the most amazing concentration of raised stones existing all over the world.

Who has made these rows ? The legend tells that the Cornelly bishop was running away from the romans…at the very edge of the coast Cornelly turned back and transformed all the soldiers into stones !

The main significance of these menhirs fields is still nowadays a real mystery. However it seems that the Carnac’s rows are related to a ritual mortuary.
