    A prehistoric gem on an island in the heart of the Gulf of Morbihan!
    Unique because of its insularity, the cairn of Gavrinis is renowned the world over for the profusion and finesse of its ornamentation. "Neolithic Sistine Chapel", this prehistoric gem is entirely covered with engravings of axes, boats, arrows, bows ... symbols of the Neolithic and our origins.
    A major site of prehistory and Morbihan, the cairn of Gavrinis conceals an archaeological mystery revealed in the 1980s. Visiting the cairn of Gavrinis has become a must for those who love culture, heritage, nature, the sea, art ...
    The recent digitization of the site offers new tools for understanding this emblematic site.
    All tours are guided.
    Departures are organized from the port of Larmor-Baden, but also from the port of Vannes on Wednesdays in summer to extend the cruise in the Gulf of Morbihan!
    Maritime links between Larmor-Baden and Port Navalo (Arzon) are also available to combine a visit to the Gavrinis cairn with that of the Petit Mont cairn.
    Opening :
    From March 16 to September 30.
