Daytrip points of interest

One day trip of about 120Km can be undertaken as depicted in the image below. Starting from Lannion one can go through: Perros-Guirec, Trégastel, Trebeurden, Cairn de Barnenez.

Cairn de Barnenez – Neolithic monument

In this trip I have included also Cairn de Barnenez, which is a Neolithic monument, dating back to 4500BC (marked with E in the road trip image). Wikipedia offers some inside about the things you can see there: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnenez . Bellow you can find some images with the area close by and with the monument.

The entrance to the monument is about 5 euro for adults and one gets also some small information about the place. If you go just close by, just up the road, there is a small road that can be undertaken on foot that will lead to the beach.

The winter weather is especially mild and it is very rare that we have snow in this region. This is due to the oceanic currents that bring warmth and rain.
