  • The mouth of this river "rebel" that is the Loire has been for many years a dreaded place of the captains of ships because of many shipwrecks took place. In 1865 this semaphore will improve the situation. Visit the small museum will return on the importance of this equipment that have left its place to a lighthouse. This site of the edge St Gildas is to do at low tide and we better understand why it was a place feared by mariners. I loved this wild place where can be found the beauty of Brittany.

  • Small lighthouse with museum. Friendly People. 4€/ person. Here you can see how a lighthouse work in the old days. Special search tour for kids. You can also go up in the lighthouse. Around the lighthouse are different bouys and bunkers.
  • Great rock pools at low tide and interesting information point about HMT Lancastria which sank nearby 0during WW2...
  • Nice location, don't really know what the actual museum is like as it was closed (even though it was supposed to be open)
  • Semaphore or lighthouse. What's the difference.? Now I know. .... I am not entered the Museum, but the place was interesting. There is also a beautiful promenade dotted with blockhouse
