Facing the Iroise Sea, the town of Brest can be discovered at a height or from the sea. The cable car goes up to Plateau des Capucins, which offers an unrivalled 360° view of the whole town. The former boat building workshops have been recently rehabilitated here. The boat trip in the bay provides a different view of the town and the coast scattered with little ports and beaches, as well as the islands. Before going to Quimper, discover the Coast of Legends and Pays des Abers, where there is the only abalone hatchery in France. The village of Menez Ham is tucked behind impressive rocks. Pointe Saint-Mathieu and its abrupt cliff is topped with a lighthouse that appears to watch over the ruins of a 6th-century abbey. Quimper reveals its architectural charm through its historic centre and its cathedral, but also its traditional arts and crafts, notably ceramics. Locronan, a small town of character, the sailcloth weaving capital in the Middle Ages, has delightful architecture and granite houses. The picturesque village has been used as the setting for many films.
