PLOUHARNEL: BETWEEN SEA AND MYSTERIES
Like a "bridge" between the mainland and the peninsula of Quiberon, the coastline west of the town lies on the largest dune in Britain, formed nearly 2000 years ago in favor of a small decline in the sea level The combined action of waves and winds have drawn the dune along the coast between the bay of Quiberon and the mainland by a tombolo.
To the south, grows a wide bay at low tide metamorphosed into a mudflat over 350 hectares, home to a multitude of seabirds. Cormorants, herring gulls, herons, egrets egret ... stay there during the migration period.
The highest point is north at a place called "Mané er Mor" to 33 meters and reveals a multifaceted landscape. Bocage, heath, pinewoods live mixing a palette of colors and unsuspected identities of Brittany.
Megalithic ruins, traditional villages, chapels, fountains, wash houses, windmills can be seen along the hiking trails to explore incentives, alone or with family ...
The authenticity of the old town with its 16th and 17th century houses, narrow streets, the peace and quiet of the two Benedictine abbeys round off a remarkable and picturesque ensemble between seas and mysteries.
