In this decoration of high cliffs covered with moors, exposed to the waves and the winds, the Pointe du Raz is certainly the most famous natural site of Finistère, but other places much less famous, but just as fascinating make up this Great Site of France of more than 2,000 hectares. The North Coast, which stretches from Pointe du Van to Pointe du Millier, offers a succession of rocky outcrops converted into fortified sites in the Iron Age.
