BREIZ ARMOR ***
Penhors beach, in the heart of Audierne Bay, is a popular spot for surfing and sand yachting enthusiasts. It's also the ideal place to enjoy swimming and relaxing with family and friends. It has been awarded the Blue Flag. In the evening, the sunset over the ocean is a magnificent sight. Open your eyes wide, tantalise your taste buds, take a deep breath... This is it! This is Breiz Armor.
Here, Finistère fully justifies its name: the end of the land is celebrated in a parade of capes and promontories that brave the open sea. Famous the world over, the Pointe du Raz has inspired many writers, including Victor Hugo, and has been designated a "great natural site of France". Sculpted by the ocean and the winds, the Pointe du Raz is well worth a visit in itself. Beyond the untamed rocks and emerald sea, the panoramic view out to sea allows you to admire the Ile de Sein and, on a clear day, the Ar Men lighthouse.

A veritable ballet of boats unfolds before your very eyes. From the panoramic terrace, admire the unloading of the day's fresh catch: the dockers load trolleys with crates full of fish, langoustines and other shellfish. The catch is then auctioned off in the auction hall below you.

Quimper has been awarded the Ville d'Art et d'Histoire (City of Art and History) label thanks to the quality of its architectural heritage: St Corentin's Cathedral, houses from the 16th and 17th centuries, the ramparts and quays of the Odet, the Locmaria district, museums, etc. Saint Corentin Cathedral is the jewel in Quimper's crown of Gothic architecture. Situated right in the centre of the town, this place of worship is steeped in history. Construction began in 1239 under Bishop Raynaud, on the foundations of a Romanesque church. Construction lasted several centuries, and in 1410 the choir vaults were completed, while the glass roofs in the upper windows were installed. Construction of the nave and the two towers on the façade began in 1424. It was only in 1854 and 1856 that the church's spires, for which it is now famous, were added.
