Discover the first ‘Grand Site de France’ in Brittany !
The Pointe du Raz lies at the tip of Europe, defiantly confronting the powerful currents of the Atlantic Ocean. This legendary, fascinating promontory is an invitation to explore the whole Cap-Sizun peninsula, whose wild headlands are a majestic tribute to the beauty of Nature. The ‘Grand Site de France’ stretches from the Anse du Loch to the Pointe du Millier and offers unrivalled, breathtaking views of the Bay of Audierne and the Bay of Douarnenez.
A rich, diverse heritage
The conservation area has an abundance of local heritage buildings with an impressive history.
On the seaward side are unusually-shaped lighthouses which stand guard over the waters of the Mer d’Iroise and tiny coves and creeks tucked away at the foot of the cliffs where boats can shelter from raging seas.
Superb walks and hikes
The natural scenery of the Pointe du Raz will enchant the most demanding of walkers.
For experienced hikers, the GR34 hiking path runs around the whole of the Pointe du Raz and Cap-Sizun. A network of local signposted walks and trails, known as « petites randonnées (PR) », criss-cross the area, allowing walkers to discover its cultural diversity, while visitors seeking a gentle stroll will appreciate shorter, better-equipped paths.
