Walled town of Concarneau

The narrow streets form an irregularly shaped little island, 350m long and 100m wide; it is linked to the mainland by two small bridges separated by a fortified structure. This is overlooked by a belfry (1906), which has become the symbol of the town. Sturdy ramparts built in the 14C and added to in the 17C encircle it. Loopholes command various views of the city, including the inner harbour with its moored trawlers, and the fish market. The entrance to the walled town is one of the busiest spots in Brittany.
