2/37.- Camaret, The Sillon


The harbour of Camaret is protected by the "Sillon", a curved natural jetty, on which the famous architect Vauban built forticfications to protect the port of Brest. The Vauban Tower, once part of the fortifications protecting the town and military port of Brest, now hosts a small maritime museum (maps, cannon, ship models, and wreckage from the Torrey Canyon. The oil spill was a tragedy for the region, its fisheries and its wildlife). Other landmarks on the jetty are the Rocamadour Chapel and the shipwharves.
