  • Enjoy to visit if you have a boat or during the summer with the shuttles. We have a beautiful panorama from the top of the Castle. Avoid the peak hours in July and August. When there are too many people, we take advantage of anything.

  • Penn - Al - Lann tip an exceptional point of view opens on the castle of Taurus. Emblematic monument erected in the XVI th century to protect the incursions of English privateers Morlaix, defensive place, State prison, secondary residence, sailing school it is today a museum to discover. Through the gangways and drawbridges, he invites to spend a fabulous time in the secrets of history. The visit of the pillboxes, guns, body guard, the Chapel is the opportunity to plunge into the atmosphere and the magic of the site and to take to pirates. Expected to emerge a Spanish galleon or other three masts of time. A Bell sound? It's the guard which sounds at the end of the visit it is time to leave and to return to the mainland but especially to keep the head full of dreams. A star is the liaison at the start of the beach of Kelenn to Carantec (duration of the crossing = 15 minutes) but you can also go to Moguériec or Plougasnou (the Diben Harbour). Nearby you can see recognizable to its famous Lighthouse Louet island. The cottage to the white figure is the only dwelling on the island. Completely restored it today houses the tourists in search of solitude, for a weekend.

  • I had chosen this destination to make a surprise to my companion, we were not disappointed. The team was available, interesting and dynamic. In addition, it was a day of high tide, we stayed on the fort in the late afternoon to evening, each brought their picnic. We followed the three workshops that were simple but interesting. A very good memory.
