Welcome to the cairn of Gavrinis!
The Gavrinis cairn can be discovered from the port of Larmor-Baden and, after a short and pleasant crossing, you will make a stopover, in the heart of the Gulf of Morbihan, on the island of Gavrinis to visit one of the most exceptional prehistoric sites in France: a monumental funerary architecture of dry stone, sheltering a dolmen
Please note that it is important to book your visit as the number of visitors is limited. Moreover, as of 9 August, your health PASS is required.
We look forward to welcoming you to this Neolithic jewel…
Erected over 6000 years ago, it is nowadays, worldwide known for its profusion of engraved ornaments.
Discovering Gavrinis means enjoying a breath-taking panoramic view over the Gulf of Morbihan, between Berder island, Er Lanninc, the island of “La Jument” the Gulf’s estuary and the ocean.
Discovering Gavrinis, means also to go back in time. Built over 6000 years ago, during the Neolithic age, long before Stonehenge, the famous Egyptian pyramids, and the Moï of the the Easter island.
The cairn of Gavrinis is a funerary architecture made of dry stone, housing a burial of our remote ancestors.
Discovering Gavrinis, means admiring a gem of the prehistoric age. The Cairn of Gavrinis is also remarkable due to its dimensions: Over 50 meters in diameter, and 6 meters high and by the richness of its engravings.
It offers a profusion of engravings of rare suability, that can not be found anywhere else in the world. Axes, bows, spirals… are represented, but the question is? What are the meanings behind them? Why have the Neolithic men built such a monument? Who were they? How did they used to live?
