A new place in the Finistére, Douarnenez

On my road warrior trips in my region, I took the opportunity to visit further areas from me and from Locronan with plenty of time, decided to visit this beach town in the Finistére, Douarnenez.

The town of Douarnenez, still keep the reputation of a sardines fishing port, even if it has diminish over the years. The great brand Connêtable is still there. It is a fishing port dotted with beaches , a pleasure marina by Tréboul and Port-Rhu.

We took the ride using the road D7 and hit it right on straight over a beautiful view by the beach of Kervel with its wooden cabins on the sand.We continue on the city center and stop by the Church of Saint-Herlé, a beautiful Church in the center of town. There is, also, the wonderful Church of Sacré-Coeur just on the rue Ernest Renan out of town.

In by the harbor or port area, you have the wonderful Port-musée, with real boats on display showing you the boating history of the town as well expos, and videos. right across from the harbor entrance and the pleasure marina of Port-Rhu. http://www.port-musee.org/

The idea of having beach areas, fishing and pleasure port, and a museum makes an interesting point to seek in better weather, and the folks are very friendly. We stop for lunch here at Restaurant Pizzeria Da Franco, at 18, Place Edouard Vaillant, and the Italian natives family was very welcoming and the pizzas deliciosas! with a  liter of real red Italian chianti wine! all for 15€ per person including expresso coffee.  They offer pizzas, pasta, salads, desserts, ice creams, and beef plates with a formule and plat du jour, they ,also, have a branch in Brest. In Douarnenez they are just opposite the square to the tourist office. No webpage but leave you with a pizza searcher resto in France, http://www.casa-pizza.com/annuaire-pizzerias/pizzeria-da-franco-9150.php

We wandered around and cross the passerelle to go to Port Rhu and Tréboul areas, easy walking exercise and nice town, we like it and we will be back. The tourist office for the town is here http://www.douarnenez-tourisme.com/  ,and city mayor’s office in the transports section is here http://www.mairie-douarnenez.fr/index.php/cadre-de-vie/transports-urbains.html

Enjoy the Finistére,Brittany ,and Douarnenez.
