Cap Frehel is one of the largest moorlands in Europe with pink sandstone cliffs that plunge 230 feet to the sea.

The 17th century granite lighthouse, Tour Vauban, stands next to the newer replacement.  We elected not to pay for the privilege of climbing the 145 steps since it cost just to park here anyway.

It’s interesting that there are no guard rails anywhere and it would be so easy to fall off one of these cliffs.  Little kids are running around and no one seems to be concerned. 
Did you know that town names in Brittany are signed in French and in Gallo, which is a Latin derived language spoken in eastern Brittany?  90 percent of the population want the Breton language and culture to survive.
