The Cap de la Chèvre is located on the southern point of the Crozon peninsula. Cliffs, covered in moors and long sandy beaches, renowned with surfers and closed to swimmers, overlook the west coast.
Other wonders to see from the Cap de la Chèvre: the bay of Douarnenez, the Bay of the Dead, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon (from afar) and even the cave of Charivari only accessible by boat during the spring tide.
On the Crozon Peninsula, you will find a shop you will love: the Biscuiterie de Camaret. A family business, the place gives you the chance to see the production of its classics like the Breton Cake, the Far Breton with prunes, the madeleines and the Kouign Amann. The shop also sells other typical Breton produce like the homemade preserves, the regional spirits and sweets.
In the 17th century Brittany was an extremely strategic region: Brest, Morlaix, Saint-Malo and Lorient were four important military ports. Defending these ports quickly became a necessity. The task was given to military engineer Vauban who had a tower built on the sur le Sillon of Camaret-sur-Mer. The harbour in Brest was well defended: on 18 June 1694, the Kingdom of Louis XIV pushed back the Anglo-Dutch during the battle of Trez-Rouz. Thanks to arrows shot from the tower, the French killed 800 of the advancing enemy, losing only around 40 of their own men. Since 2008, the Vauban Tower has been a Unesco World Heritage monument.
