  • This medieval tower was built during the war of Succession of Brittany in the 14th century, to control communication between the two shores. She is one of the few who survived the bombing of the last war.

  • Free tour. It is put at the disposal of visitors full of documents, drawings, photos, etc... introducing Brest before 1920. Everyone to take the time to find out. Very interesting.

  • Content and non-electronic works, this isn't worse because they can't fail XD so there are no children fighting for touching a screen or a keyboard without trying to understand the content. Everyone looks and reads what he wants and when he wants. This is the perfect place for an overview of the history of Brest before the 1st GM without feeling obliged to follow a path. Photos are forbidden on the 1st and last floor (between what is said in the home and the small posters at strategic locations, the only valid excuse is "I do not read the French"). Free, time to be there.

  • Amazing
  • Interesting place to visit
  • Exposure a bit dated, but interesting documents on the history of Brest and the neighborhood of Recouvrance. Children will enjoy the model; the largest, the photos and some text. history buffs, archival documents and a few historical objects. Mind the steps! The place is inaccessible by wheelchair, and there are only stairs to visit the exhibition. It is the building that wants it, the Tour Tanguy is one of the few medieval remnants of the city of Brest. It's still an interesting place to visit for the history in connection with the House of the fountain (contemporary art), the garden of the Explorers (public garden and belvedere) and Recouvrance bridge. Admission is free

  • A part of the history of Brest (city and sea), the person who welcomes you is a lady lover of this period and which is welcoming and very pleasant, I spend a great morning! Thank you Madam, guardian of history! Marc geoffrion.

  • That disappointment. In the positive, the lady was nice and smiling hospitality. The rest... Super disappointed that half of the tower is inaccessible. Great wealth in the photos and paintings but very bad highlighted. I went back to telling me... Fortunately it's free. To review this Tanguy Tower, which has a huge potential.
