Brest is as big and bold as its history. This naval port has many military landmarks for you to explore. View the heavily fortified Chateau de Brest and the rotund 14th century Tour Tanguy tower. The tower contains a museum with dioramas depicting the town on the eve of World War II. But Brest is so much more than a military town. It is the gateway to enchanting medieval villages and abbeys, the mythical Abers Coast and elegant chateaux. And if you're looking for keepsakes, Brest has handcrafted ceramic pieces and fashions with a nautical flair. Instead of recapping your day over seafood, opt for Breton crêpes made with buckwheat - they are a specialty here.
