  • This carefully restored fortress is situated in one of the loveliest bays in Brittany and welcomes you with open arms!

    The fortress known as the Château du Taureau is located just as you leave Carantec in Plougasnou, and you can choose whatever kind of visit you like, be this a guided tour, a theatrical encounter or a singing or storytelling experience. There are thousands of ways to feel the magic of a place that was built to safeguard the Bay of Morlaix from English raiders. Exploring the Taureau is more than just another visit - this is a journey to the heart of History itself, and a tribute to the memories of a Bay area whose natural treasures are still intact. Meander around the place as you explore the bunkers on the terrace area, stroll along the passageways and have a look at the drawbridge. All visitors are free to roam around the three levels of the faithfully restored building. This year, the Château du Taureau has laid on a host of new things to do including picnic spots, historic visits and “pirates for little ones” activities. Those travelling by boat can still access the fortress on small boats.
