    Circuit de falaises

    by himalia11 Updated Nov 3, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The "Circuit de falaises" is a signposted route that brings you to various nice viewpoints and beaches. Plouha has a lovely rugged coast with 100 m high cliffs, the highest in Brittany. Taking that route is a great opportunity to enjoy the coast without having to walk the whole coastal path – although that would have been nice too! The streets are all paved but are a bit bumpy, and I was happy that we occasionally saw those brown signs of the circuit as I quickly got lost in this labyrinth of small streets!

    The circuit continues on the coast of Plouézec, with some other nice places like the Pointe de Minard and Pointe de Bilfot, see may Paimpol/Plouézec page.

    Church of Lanloup

    by himalia11 Written Nov 3, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lanloup is a village north of Plouha with a nice little church. This church was built in the 15th and 16th century on the place of a former church from the 13th century. The entrance is on the side and you first will pass a porch with statues of the apostles. In front of the church is a small "calvaire" (calvary). It's a pillar with the crucifixion group on the top, and such "calvaire" are pretty common in Brittany. The base of that "calvaire" shows the year 1758 which seems to be the year of some renovation of the base, the other parts are probably older.

    Pointe de la Tour

    by himalia11 Written Nov 3, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pointe de la Tour (Tower head) is found near the village Bréhec, a bit more south. It's named like this as there used to be a tower on the headland in the Middle Ages. Today you here rather find remains of bunkers from WWII, as this place was an observation post of the German troops during that time. It's really a good place to watch into all directions, and although we didn't walk to the tip of the head we could enjoy a fantastic view.
