Powerful Places in Brittanyby Elyn Aviva & Gary White.
Powerful Places in Brittany is not your usual guidebook. It’s not about visiting places, it’s about experiencing them. Come and explore a carefully chosen selection of sites in this land of myth and mystery.
In Brittany you’ll find the world’s largest collection of megaliths, including cairns with fascinating interior carvings, an enchanted forest (or two) filled with legends of Arthur and Merlin, evocative pilgrimage shrines, and holy wells. The book provides detailed descriptions of these powerful places, how to get there, and what to do when you arrive. Numerous maps, graphics, and photos bring the locations to life.
If you are intrigued by the unusual; if you long to connect more deeply with the places you visit; if you have a nagging feeling that there’s more to some places than meets the eye—this is the travel guide for you.

Praise for Powerful Places in Brittany“Elyn Aviva's writing is always clear, engaging and exciting. Her knowledge of and passion for mythology, iconography and history makes places and events come alive, and you are transported in time to the essence of place and people whose spirits continue to infuse and in-form. To not read "Powerful Places" guides when traveling to these locations is to miss out on a great deal of insight and connection. I highly recommend all her books!”—A. Griffin
“Powerful Places in Brittany is the kind of book that actually transports your imagination to the rich landscapes of France before you even arrive at your destination. The personal accounts describing the sensations the authors felt when visiting the megaliths, churches and other places of power are so helpful when planning your trip. Many guidebooks describe the bricks and mortar of tourist sites but when you visit, the experience seems flat. With this guide, the locations are selected for the beauty, awe and emotion they evoke. If you are interested in the spiritual aspects of travel or really experiencing the ancient megaliths of Brittany (rather than witnessing them as a tourist), White and Aviva have written the perfect guide to start you on your way.”—Katrina Eldridge
“I really loved this book, and first read it cover to cover just for the info and the stories within it. But when I actually took it with me on an excursion to Brittany in April, it truly revealed its value to me. Because of the careful explanations, I was able to locate standing stones in the Carnac region that were located "in the wild" and could be explored and enjoyed at any time, without buying a ticket and worrying about closing hours. There are tons of little gems of wisdom and advice to help you get the maximum experience from your quest. Let me emphasize that this is not a traditional tourist book nor is it meant to be. It does not cover all of Brittany, and in fact misses much of the north. But the beauty is that it is focused on a specific region which the authors clearly know well, and the memories we have from using this book are priceless. I am very grateful to the authors for sharing their secret places so generously with the rest of us. Don't leave home without it!”—Katie Mac
