Kerzerho Megaliths

Erdeven, France

There are 195 megaliths in Kerzerho, aligned east to west. They extend over 200 metres in 5 rows. Dating from between 5,000 to 2,000 BC, they have of course suffered over the years. In fact only a few centuries ago there were 1130 stones in 11 rows: the structure must have been 2 kilometres long by 65 metres wide.

A really nice historic place. I must been very important for Keltic peoples or for Obelix?. Never saw such a huge amount of Megalith stones.

Interesting set of standing stones.

Great site even though it is right on a road. Clean and you can commune with the huge rocks. Surprisingly, there was no trash and no graffiti or signs of abuse (other than the obvious shoving aside of some stones to make the road ages ago) for a site that is not wired out of public touch by the authorities. Another GREAT thing about this site is: no tickets, tours, or bookshop; no little tourist signs or trains or even drive by's; not even painted lines in the parking lot--simply a great site in its almost natural present day environment. Also dog friendly with lots of friendly dogs.

Church of St Donatus

The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.

The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.

The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
