On the coast of Brittany’s Cornouaille region, Concarneau is just 15 km west of Pont-Aven. A town of art and history, this city overlooking the ocean is a magnet for visitors. Exploring the area is a must for holidaymakers staying in South Finistère. Concarneau is France’s third-largest fishing port and a popular holiday destination almost all year round. Discover the walled town in the middle of the port: the Musée de la Pêche (Fishing Museum) and the chocolatiers and their famous crêpes are well worth a visit.

Concarneau, a fortified town in South Finistère with many charms

On the land side, you’ll be seduced by the walled city and its fortifications. Like a link between the raging ocean and its fertile hinterland, a bridge leads to the medieval town that occupies the center of the harbor. The remarkably well-preserved remains take walkers back to the time of the knights, then of Vauban.

Inside the fortified town, stroll through the narrow streets to admire some of Concarneau’s oldest homes. The program includes timber-framed and granite-gabled houses, ramparts punctuated by 9 towers, a visit to the Fishing Museum and panoramic views of the marina and fishing ports. You’ll find a few Breton delicacies to complement this lovely stroll.

On the seafront, family activities abound:
– walk on the corniche ;
– swimming and sandcastles on one of the town’s beaches;
– water activities.

All year round, enjoy children’s workshops, themed tours, show tours, exhibitions and festive activities.
