Many legendary sites in the forest of Brocéliande include menhirs, burial mounds, covered galleries dating back to the Neolithic era. On the edge of the Brocéliande forest, the site of the menhirs of Monteneuf provides a spectacular insight into the mysteries of megalithic sites.
In Monteneuf, you will be able to wander in-between the 42 standing menhirs on a site that includes over 400 stones currently undergoing archaeological research. Access to this space and to the interpretation circuit is free.
Discussed themes: Why and how were menhirs raised? What was daily life like for people in the Neolithic era? How is archaeological research carried out? What are the latest findings?
During school holidays, the association Les Landes that manages the site organises discovery and initiation workshops where participants can learn and test the techniques used by Prehistorical men.
Workshops for the whole family
Advance booking advised
Guided tours are organised in the summer. A guide specialised in cultural heritage will help you look for clues and traces on the stones and tell you the story of raised stones and of the men that built them.
