Nestled deep within a bay of the same name, Douarnenez is a fishing port, a centre of the canned-fish industry, a spa for thalassotherapy and a seaside resort. Having in the past bewitched artists like Renoir and Boudin with its coloured façades and attractive little streets, this town (which in 1921 became France's first Communist municipality) draws numerous visitors.
