There are many megalithic monuments in the countryside around Douarnenez, but this Gallery Grave is said to date from around 4500 BC. It is locally known as ‘Ti ar C’horriged’, which translates as ‘home of the pixies’, and its self-supporting structure is quite rare in this region. It would have been used as a collective grave where bodies were placed and perhaps even piled up. This structure was almost certainly topped by a piece of stone or tump of earth, as were the majority of these structures.
There is a small car park where you can leave your vehicle, then you simply follow the little path to the woodland.
