Landerneau town guide
Situated very close to Brest, visitors by hire car will find this small town on the North Western tip of Brittany. It is a very short drive from the ferry port at Roscoff. This part of Brittany is best known for its wild coast line and superb sea views. To the east is the rocky north coast or if you head south you will rind the rocky headlands becoming gentler as the softer Southern Brittany coast is reached.
Landearneau itself is part of the religious trail which runs throughout Brittany and can be traced by the numerous memorials which dot the countryside. It is a popular venue for specialist religious holidays.
Nearby Brest is a bustling naval town and has all the services and facilities that one would expect, it is not particularly attractive apart from the old town and port which warrant a visit and will provide the tourist with a good chance to sample some of the superb sea food of the area. The mussels and oysters are particularly good. The oysters will often be found at the more expensive end of the fixed price menus but can also be bought much more cheaply in the markets. Remember that you will need a short, sharp, strong knife or special tool to open them, good luck and enjoy.
