Tour 03 - Ménéac

The Ménéac Markers.

 
Ménéac is a small village roughly in the centre of Brittany. Often ignored by visitors to Brittany we will show you some of Ménéac's amazing secrets. 
 
For this tour we will meet in the little village of La Trinité-Porhoët in order to approach our first site from the south west. The tour will take from 90 minutes to two hours in which you will see four extant neolithic menhirs and a probable fifth that has fallen. We believe that these five menhirs were intended as way-markers to a far away site you will learn more about as the tour progresses.
 
Although only a short tour, this is one for the agile as there are some steep slopes and numerous slip and trip hazards. We would stress that this tour is taken entirely at your own risk. Having said that, your guide's arthritic knee has not proved to be a barrier to enjoying these sites. We do, however, recommend sturdy walking boots.
 
This tour will give us the opportunity to discuss what motivated ancient people to locate some of their monuments where they did, and how they may have understood their place in the landscape. The photo below shows the approach to the final site on this tour which is unforgettable for its sheer WOW factor!

This would make an ideal introduction to some of Brittany's "off the beaten track" archaeological gems. We would recommend starting your visit at around 11am then rounding off your morning with lunch in the village, or maybe start with lunch then walk off some of the calories afterwards.
