The archaeological site of Menez Dregan
To better understand where we come from, the site of Menez Dregan in Plouhinec takes us back in the footsteps of our ancestors. Jump back 465,000 years to the time of Homo Heidelbergensis, early man who learned how to use fire and hunted elephants on the plains that are now lost underwater.
A cave, a necropolis, a gallery grave: Menez Dregan covers a long period of prehistory that goes from the Paleolithic to the Neolithic, around 5,000BC. There is a 9-step visitor centre along the coast here that shares specific information about the three archaeological sites and the history of our ancestors who once lived here.
