The field of stones
The sense of wonder begins before landing at the bottom of the green and white lighthouse. From Audierne, the crossing follows the cliffs of Cap Sizun, revealing Pointe du Raz in a new angle and leaving Vieille lighthouse in its wake. Once on land, the first thing you will notice are the pink, yellow and blue colours of the buildings on Quai des Paimpolais. Some are bistros where lobster is eaten with the fingers. Behind the dyke and the first line of buildings, the houses snuggle together in winding alleys to thwart the wind. Some of the alleys are no wider than 85 cm! Just enough for a barrel!
Beyond the port, the moor stretches out (culminating at 6 metres), sometimes immersed by the high tides. Not a tree stands on this bare wilderness. Only stone walls emerge, sheltering tiny crops. In front of the rocks sculpted by erosion, the Grand Phare lighthouse also seems to watch over the charming Saint-Corentin chapel. It was home to a statue of the saint, whose crook was turned in the direction of the desired winds by the sailors.
