Douarnenez

Only one photo today. On our way from Crozon to the Pointe du Raz, we passed the city of Douarnenez and were taken by the view from across its bay. Obviously a port town, the pastel colors of some of the buildings were a surprise in otherwise black-and-white Brittany.

The port of Douarnenez on the bay of the same name.

There are about 16,000 Douarnenistes living there today. We didn't drive into town, but I'll bet it would have been worth a look. Ah, next time...

  1. We stopped in Douarnanez once a few years ago - it was a beautiful little town, especially at sunset.

  2. Ken!

    Next time you go to Point du Raz, stop in Pouldrezic at the cider bottling plant just sout of town.

    Fantastic cider: KERNE; the best in Brittany or even Normandy.
