Town of Art and History
This is a town of space and wide horizons, open to the wind and the seaspray. It’s a town that is in constant communication with the sea, so that the urban and coastal sides of the town seem to blend together. The Town Hall draws the eye to la Penfeld. The central streets of Jean Jaurès and Siam lead you to the waters known as the Rade de Brest. Tanguy Tower houses the museum of Old Brest, while the Château is home to the National Navy Museum. The Explorers’ Garden introduces you to rare and exotic plants, while Cours Dajot offers a long promenade area lined with trees and dotted with benches that tempt you to linger.
