About Cairn Of The Isle Of Gavrinis, Vannes

On an island of Granite called Gavrinis, you will find that the time has stopped running, long back. Situated in the Gulf of Morbihan, this place is one of the best preserved sites in Brittany. 1835 saw the first session of excavations. Since then, this island has gone through a series of more exploratory ventures and many attempts of restoration. Highlights include:

  • A tomb that dates back to the French monolithic age.
  • A passageway that is full of engravings of the age it was built in (Zigzag lines, lozenges, axes, staffs and stylized human motifs).
  • A guided tour through all of this.
  • A boat trip to reach the island.

The artwork here is peculiar yet exciting. The tour will help you understand what the interpretations are. A trip to this place will take you back in time.

  • It's incredible how old it was and that it is still standing.

  • Beautiful Craig, well explained

  • Le site est magnifique avec sa vue directe sur l'entrée du Golfe. La partie visitable est bien entretenu et bien fermé pour garder le lieu dans le meilleur état possible. En revanche la visite est très encadré et la durée est cadencé par l'arrivée du bateau avec un nouveau groupe de visiteurs. Du coup pas le temps de poser de questions à la guide lorsqu'on intéressé. La seule question que j'ai posé c'est soldé par un "j'y répondrai plus tard" puis par une réponse vague.

  • Incroyable. Penser que ça a déjà 5000 ans. Bon guide qui explique tout en détails.

  • Visite vraiment très intéressante : cairn superbe, rempli de motifs gravés dans les pierres et très bonne guide.
