#6 – Carnac, Brittany, France

It seems endless labyrinth of ritualistic structures of stones, creating intricate patterns, complying with its laws and driving the uninitiated minds crazy. It is estimated that there are about four thousand of such people, divided into three groups, although it is believed that they were a single entity at one time.

It seems that stones offer to everyone a kind of quest - if you reach the tomb called "Kercado" starting from the southern tip with a mound over it - you're lucky. You'll have fame, money, and happiness in personal life. If no - time will show. Some people, like the old-timers say, wander through the winding paths of the rays eternally surly Breton sun.

Buildings, according to scientists, have an age of about 5,000 years.

Literally from Gaelic this name translated as "stone cake." Nothing is more intimidating and causing terror in the mystical Emerald Isle fail to find.

They say there Green Lady dwells - woman of a magic beauty in long elegant dress. This is believed to Elizabeth Connor, the daughter of one of the owners. Ostensibly Green Lady is so sad that at a meeting with her man is embraced with the deepest sadness that can grow into a melancholy fatal outcome...
