1. Closer to the stars in the Iroise Sea
Pointe Saint-Mathieu lighthouse, Plougonvelin
Tonight, at Pointe Saint-Mathieu, it’s a night of illuminations. At the extreme west of Finistère, when the sun bows out, it’s time for a grand ballet of light: that of the lighthouses and beacons in the Iroise Sea. With 163 steps to climb, the show is worthy of the effort. At the top, 37 m above ground, what a view! You can see the Fresnel lens in action. Guess which lighthouses you can see, lighting up the ocean like candles: use the guide to help you. The immensity of the ocean unfolds before you, etched in your eyes and in your memory once back on dry land.
