Gavrins cairn (Gavr’inis)
GPS: 47.571800N, 2.8983W
This extraordinary monument is the longest passage tomb in Brittany: 11.8 m long, 2 m high and only 1.5 m wide. No finds were recorded from excavations.
When entering the tomb it becomes immediately apparent that is a special place and different to any of the other tombs nearby. The stones of the passage and the chamber are all of similar, bright colour. The tomb has a unique pleasant ambience. However what makes Gavrinis so special and famous is the wealth of engraved stones. Twenty-three out of its twenty-nine orthostats are engraved.
