The Pointe du Raz, Grand Site de France

One of France’s greatest natural sights, the Pointe du Raz headland is the only one in Brittany to have been awarded the status of Grand Site de France. Similar to Land’s End in England, it’s a must for visitors to the département, or county, of Finistère

As one of the most westerly points in France, it has earned the nickname of ‘the end of the earth’. From the Pointe du Raz, you get exceptional views over the Atlantic, the Raz de Sein (the rock-strewn waters between the mainland and the island of Sein),
the local lighthouses and the Baie des Trépassés (or Bay of the Dead), notorious for its many legends.
A specially laid-out path allows you to walk safely around this dramatic site.

Don’t miss La Maison du Site at the Pointe du Raz. At this visitor centre, learn more about France’s ‘Land’s End’, its conservation and the possibilities for walks and other tourist activities nearby. There’s also a row of shops here where you can eat, buy specialities, or simply take a break.

The site is managed by the Syndicat Mixte pour l’Aménagement et la Protection de la Pointe du Raz et du Cap Sizun, under the combined authority of the joint local councils of Le Cap Sizun, the Conservatoire du Littoral (a national body that protects large swathes of France’s coastline) and Finistère Conseil Général (or County Council).

Guided tours can be organized throughout the year by reserving in advance with the Maison du Site. Guided hikes are also possible.
