Douarnenez, the former sardine capital, has a picturesque urban heritage made up of old canneries, factory workers' houses, fishermen's families and sardine factory workers. On the other hand, seaside villas, from the most imposing to the most modest, dot the Tréboul district.
The Cap Sizun and the Pointe du Raz
The Cap-Sizun offers a concentrate of Brittany in a wild and preserved territory: white sand beaches, spectacular viewpoints on the Iroise Sea, rough and preserved cliffs. With the emblematic site of the Pointe du Raz, the main cliffs of Cap Sizun form the "Grand Site de France".
Pont l'Abbé and the Pays Bigouden
The Pays Bigouden is a land of character and traditions, known for its headdress, but not only. Pont l'Abbé, its castle and its inhabited bridge are home to traditions. A true land of fishermen with its four lively ports: Le Guilvinec, Loctudy, Saint Guénolé-Penmarc'h and Lesconil
Pays de Fouesnant and Bénodet
Fouesnant les Glénan will surprise you with the diversity of its charms: indented coasts, long sandy beaches, hiking trails via the mythical GR34. Let yourself be charmed by the superb seaside resort of Bénodet, its cornice, its beaches... without forgetting its Casino and its thalassotherapy.
Concarneau is an ancient port town and stronghold of Brittany, and has preserved a rich architectural heritage. Sheltered by the fortifications of the walled city, trawlers and coastal fishermen unload their catch not far from the canneries and shipyards. Its bay is home to a seaside resort with fine sandy beaches.
Follow in the footsteps of Paul Gauguin. Imagine him on the port, on the banks of the Aven, admiring the successive mills. You will understand why he loved this city of painters so much, which he made known beyond the seas. For a gourmet break, there are of course the authentic galettes.
The Crozon peninsula
Breathtaking sites, which one would like to never forget: this peninsula is grandiose on all sides. This is not new: megaliths, the Vauban tower (Unesco heritage), the fortification route. Thrill seekers, rock climbing, canoyning or sea fishing await you.
