CONCARNEAU et its city closes - 29900

The closed city and its ramparts is one of the most visited sites of Brittany.

In the summer it is advisable to go there in the morning because its narrow streets can be quickly congested. Two small bridges open the doors of the walls. On the sides, paved alleys escape to openings overlooking the fishing harbour with 200 boats animating the docks and the yelling. Don’t forget to visit the fishing museum at the entrance of the brothel city extremely rich through the collection of maritime heritage.

To deepen the visit, look at the different fishing techniques (trawl, tuna, sardine, etc.) and climb aboard L'Hémérica, an authentic 34 m trawler, moored at the museum dock. To see absolutely! To visit as a family because there are animation workshops for children.
