Brest, France Cruises

Situated within the Finistere department of Brittany on the Atlantic Coast of France is the port city of Brest. Despite heaving bombing of the city during the Second World War, Brest has retained much of its fascinating historical architecture and also boasts a series of impressive renovations and developments completed during the 20th and 21st centuries. The city is surrounded by a dramatic landscape which incorporates serene beaches, intriguing caves and grottos alongside high rocky cliffs. Brest, however, is most famous for its maritime history and has been one of France's essential naval ports and military arsenals for centuries. The city's ever-present link to the ocean, alongside its fascinating culture and heritage, give the region its captivating qualities and character.

Sightseeing in Brest

The French city of Brest contains a range of attractions, excursions and sight-seeing opportunities. Examples of the area's historical structures and architecture include Siam Street, the military arsenal and Pont de Recouvrance, otherwise known as the Recouvrance Bridge, a huge 64 metre long drawbridge. The outskirts of the city are a fantastic place to go hiking or cycling to observe the spectacular scenery around the neighbouring regions.

Oceanopolis

The incredible Oceanopolis aquarium in Brest is a fantastic place spend the day whilst staying in the city. The complex covers vast area of around 8000 metres squared, with 50 separate aquariums containing thousands of different species of marine creatures. The aquarium contains three themed areas; the polar, tropical and temperate buildings, each with their own unique collection of aquatic life.

The Tanguy Tower

The Tanguy Tower is one of Brest's oldest structures and nowadays contains the Musee de la Tour Tanguy, a fascinating exhibit displaying models of the city just before the outbreak of World War II.
