Family visits in French:

This tour is aimed at families, but is open to the general public. It consists of a description of the megalithic architecture, the way of life of Neolithic societies and their burial practices, followed by a more playful aspect. This latter approach is punctuated by descriptions of reproductions of Neolithic objects (arrowheads, pottery, axes, assegais, etc.).

Events such as storytelling and concerts (depending on the programme) can be organised during the summer.

Exhibitions around the site are the result of collaboration throughout the year between one or more artists or photographers and local schoolchildren.
