We were just taking in the excellent views around the headland and stumbled upon this historic, through the millennia , site over looking Brest. Excellent small museum is hidden in one of the bunkers.

Nice if you take the walk from Roscanvel
Jul. 2019 • Couples
I would not advise to drive all the way from anywhere to this site. But if you take the walk from Roscanvel along the GR34 it makes it worthwhile. The view over the bay of Brest is impressive when naval ships are in the harbour. Some more info panels would make the visit more valuable.
As usual in France the signs for the walks is far from perfect so be prepared to guess sometimes and carry a GPS in orde not to get lost.

Spectacular views

From this place you will be able to look over the bay of Brest and out into the Atlantic.

If you want, you can follow the coastal trail for a while, there are more historic fortifications to be discovered, some of them are not cleared from vegetation though.

Stunning views of Brest

Take the road to the Crozon Peninsula, itself a scenic beauty. At Camaret, head for the Pointe des Espagnols, named after a fortress which you can visit. Walk along the coastal path for breathtaking views of the approaches to the port of Brest.

Lovely clear view of Brest
Jul. 2016 • Couples
During our tour of Finistere we by-passed Brest, preferring Quimper in our time scale. We made a detour to La pointe des Espagnols and were delighted by the very clear views of the city. We enjoyed the historical forts and explanations and we felt that it was well worth going to it.
