<p> A major tourist site has been curiously highlighted by a ranking which lists the ugliest sites in France! </p>
<p>It is one of the favorite historical sites of the French who flock there in large numbers every year. It is even a candidate for UNESCO World Heritage status. However, a recent ranking has just placed it among the ugliest sites in France! This site is Carnac, in Brittany, known worldwide for its alignments of menhirs dating from the Neolithic, long before our ancestors the Gauls.</p>
<p>This time, it is not for its dolmens and menhirs that the town of Morbihan made the headlines but by winning the curious "Prix de la France Moche" awarded by Landscapes of France. To achieve this, the association highlighted photography. The distinction was granted to the commune of Morbihan due to a temporary development along the departmental road 196, near the famous alignments of Ménec. The Paysages de France association, focused on the fight against ugliness, ironically welcomed this "beautiful, very rectilinear alignment, with perfectly identical menhirs, without any vegetation to hide them". This amusing remark was aimed at the white poles, of which there are around 500 present on the road bordering the site.</p>
