Pointe des Espagnols

Recommended
This point, opposite Brest, owes its name to the Spanish garrison which occupied the area for a brief period in 1594 in order to help the League against Henri IV. The latter's troops defeated the League six months after it landed. Today, the site commands a splendid view of the Sound of Brest, the Elorn estuary, Albert-Louppe Bridge, Iroise Bridge, the peninsula of Plougastel at the tip of the Pointe de l'Armorique, and the far end of the roadstead.
