Starting from Pointe Saint-Mathieu
It all begins at the edge of the world, on this tip with the remains of a medieval abbey, a semaphore, a chapel, and a striking lighthouse. Before heading to Brest, take on the challenge of the “Eiffel tower of Iroise”!
Near the steep cliffs battered by the sea and winds, a striking lighthouse watches over the ruins of a former abbey. It’s a compelling scene. Pointe Saint-Mathieu feels like the very essence of Brittany. A short walk away is the port of Le Conquet, the departure point for trips to the Isles of Ouessant and Molène. Nearby, the little village of Plougonvelin gives an authentic Breton feel to this family-friendly resort.
