The huge buildings that once housed the Arsenal’s mechanical workshops have been transformed into the largest covered public space in Europe. It is accessible by car, tram and even by… cable car
The castle of Brest has the particularity of being one of the rare vestiges of the history of the city, which was destroyed by the second world war. Now home to the Musée National de la Marine, this medieval fortress bears witness to Brest’s maritime and military past. Thanks to its strategic location in the heart of the city, on a rocky spur, the castle dominates the Penfeld, the harbour and the gully. A must-see place to discover !
The first tourist resort in Brittany, Océanopolis invites you to discover the oceans through 3 themed pavilions faithfully recreating the polar, tropical and temperate environments populated by some of the most emblematic animal species !
