Curiosities of Le Conquet !!

The town of Le Conquet sits on a tip of the peninsula about 2h30 from our house. It is the westernmost part of continental France in gorgeous Finistére dept 29, and my lovely Bretagne. Easy ride on the N165 towards Brest and there get on the direction Guipavas airport following Guillou Saint Renan and finally Le Conquet, most on the D67,and finally entering town on the D789.

Le Conquet has only three island towns Ouessant, Île-Mullein and Île-de-Sein are further west in France. The Breton name of the Le Conquet is Konk-Leon. I have written several posts on the town but found me new older pictures in my vault that need to have in my blog, Therefore, here are my curiosities of Le Conquet !! Hope you enjoy it as I,

I found me another picture of the city hall or mairie of Le Conquet that has a nice history, already told in previous post, The city of Le Conquet purchase the building and grounds and finally in 2000 it was made into the City/Town hall we see today!

 You come to the beautiful presqu’île de Kermorvan,or Kermorvan peninsula all the way to the pointe de Kermorvan and a lighthouse as well as a fort de l’Ilette, another military marvel done in 1847 and still accessable in low sea levels on foot. We made it all the way to the pointe to see the lighthouse of kermorvan, which is not allow visits. This is gorgeous country and a must to see here.
