The Lagatjar Stone Rows are located on the Crozon Peninsula in the Finistère department of Brittany in France near Camaret-sur-Mer. It is believed that 400 menhirs - large and small - should have stood here, which made up the main building with a total length of 600 meters.

And these rows of stones are also of great importance for galactic hitchhikers, as the longest row consists of 42 menhirs with a length of about 200 meters.

The former mansion of the artist Saint-Pol-Roux, which he named "Manoir de Boultous" after his son, is also located in the immediate vicinity. It was bombed and destroyed by the Allies in 1944.
