Concarneau, known as the « blue town » is a picture-postcard town located 30 kilometres from the campsite. It is the largest tuna port in Europe and the third largest for fresh fish. The early morning fish auction is a spectacular sight and popular with tourists.
You’ll soon fall in love with the quaint « ville close » (walled town) and impressive forfifications located right in the centre of the town. When visiting this islet measuring 350 metres long and 100 metres wide, you’ll come across the splendid belfry and sundial. Within the walls, the streets are lined with pretty houses, a fishing museum, a fountain at Place Saint-Guénolé as well as all sorts of shops and boutiques to buy your souvenirs.
Concarneau is one of the most visited sites in Brittany and we strongly recommend you visit in the morning. Click here for further information on Concarneau.
