Cities of France: Karnak

4 km north of the Karnak city of Karnak (Carnac) is located at the base of the Carnak Peninsula (Carnac) Prehistoric plot In Europe – about three thousand mysterious stone pillars ("Tumuli") and dolmen era of the neolithic forming three groups. Archaeologists compare this complex of megaliths with the Palace of Knossos, Stonehenge, Brodgar Ring at the Orkney Islands and Even the Egyptian Temples of Carnaca (it is quite possible that the name coincidence is not at all by chance), although his true purpose is still not solid. In any case, these are the most ancient stone buildings in Western Europe (older than the same Stonehenge at least 3 thousand years!), and so-called "Great stone pillars" Locmariaquer and Brise are considered the earliest astronomical instruments on the continent. However, at present, the complex has collapsed (or, as some believe, it was created – lying), but there are developing options for its restoration, like many other megaliths, practically destroyed by time and people.

In the carnak itself created a good Prehistoric Museum www.museedecarnac.Com. At the same time, the town of Karnak is a major sea resort, quite inexpensive according to Brittany standards, by the way. Therefore, here you can combine historical excursions with rest by the sea.
