Cairn Of The Isle Of Gavrinis - Review

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

  • Guide un peu special. Le site est en lui même magnifique et très intéressant mais le tarif me paraît assez élevé.

  • Excursion réservée, 15 mns en bateau. Un guide sur l'ile pour l'explication et la visite du tumulus...très intéressant

  • Ce Cairn est magnifiquement sculpté, il est donc très intéressant et tout à fait différent de ce que l'on connaît. La visite est très enrichissante. Et le voyage en bateau aller-retour très sympathique, avec des commentaires tout au long de la route. Une très belle excursion à ne pas manquer.
