Carnac is a seaside resort, with hundreds of stones in the Field of Megaliths. These stones date back to Neolithic times, and although no one knows what the stones were used for, religious connections seem obvious. In addition to the ancient stones, the nearby Musee de Prihistoire contains collections dating back to 450,000 B.C. Carnac is also known for its beautiful sand dunes and wild seaside location.
