Tour 01 - Locminé
The Locminé Loop
If you are living or taking a holiday in central Brittany, the busy little town of Locminé is a great starting point for a visit to some fascinating sites, ranging from the modest to the intriguing and the truly spectacular.
Our rendez-vous point in Locminé
After meeting in the centre of Locminé we will head south to explore six fascinating sites. Our first stop will be a brief pause at a small dolmen (burial chamber) after which we will move on to discover a range of menhirs (standing stones), and a couple of sites of uncertain purpose, most of which rarely figure on the itinerary of visitors to this part of Brittany.
|Our first stop|
We will explore some of the associations between these sites and their natural surroundings whilst also taking some time to appreciate the ingenuity of the inhabitants of prehistoric Brittany. We will also do our best to find some of the carvings reported by various archaeologists at some of these monuments. Despite several visits we are yet to locate them all!
|The smaller of two standing menhirs we will see on this tour!|
Our tour ends at one of Brittany's oldest sites and one that has a real "wow" factor for anybody with an interest in some of western Europe's earliest civilisations.
|Our final stop and one of the oldest sites in all of Brittany|
This tour takes up to three and a half hours and involves some short walks for which sturdy shoes would be advisable. It is suitable for all ages but not all the sites we will visit are appropriate for people with mobility difficulties. There is an option to visit one site with a steep flight of steps to the bottom of a wooded river valley, but this can be omitted without detracting massively from the overall tour.
