HISTORY AND CULTURE
Penmarch, under the Eckmuhl lighthouse, is located in the south of Finistere, the west part of Cornouailles. This part of Brittany, going from Douarnenez to Pont l'Abbé, is very rich and diversified.
You have to drive maximum one hour to go from part to part and discover the most famous places, as little villages, big towns as Brest or Quimper, churches, dolmens, standing stones and so on…
