This awe-inspiring megalithic mausoleum isn’t just Europe’s largest… it’s also the oldest in the world. 75 metres long and 25 metres wide, the mausoleum holds two burial chambers – one from 4500 years ago, and another that was added a few centuries later. It’s not allowed to actually go into the cairn’s interior passages. There is evidence that the civilisation that built this one also built other cairns around Brittany – the symbols drawn onto the rocks match those found on other sites. It’s a nice place to stroll – the sky is usually bright blue, the field is bright green, and the sea sparkles in the sunlight. These ancient dudes really couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque burial place.
