The Créac'h Lighthouse

The Interpretation Centre of Lighthouses and buoys located in the former engine room retraces the history of these light towers from antiquity to our days. Here you will find a collection of turbines, lenses, lamps and reflectors; all of which bring to mind the keeper's functions and his life. The light of Ouessant's lighthouse is made up of four lamps which provide a luminous power of 20 million candelas and extends to an average range of over 60 km.
