"Typical fishing harbour" Le Conquet by bzh

Le Conquet Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 39 photos

Le Conquet, aka Konk Leon in Breton, is a small fishing village West of Brest. Its narrow streets are lined with some of the most beautiful traditional Breton houses.

Tidal harbour

The harbour uses the natural estuary of a small river that cuts through the coastal cliffs. Most of it is affected by the tide that leaves the boats dry twice a day. The village itself climbs up the cliff from the South side of the harbour resulting in very steep streets.

Fresh fish

The fishing fleet of Le Conquet provides fresh fish to quite a few places around and this is visible all around the harbour. If you time it right, you can even get fresh fish virtually out of the boats by going to the fish market just after they have come back.

    Le Conquet....never heard of it, but it looks so beautiful. Lovely sea pictures. Have to visit Brittany one day, I decided after seeing the rest of your French pages ages ago.

    This may not be a tourist town, but it has splendid coastal sceneries. Very well written descriptions.
