Finistère is a concentrate of Brittany, an advanced point in the ocean, where nature is not one but multiple, changing according to the light. Harmony, maritime tradition and love of the land are reconciled here in this space of magic and legends. León in the north, Cornwall in the south, part of the Trégor in the east are all territories that contain a rich culture, as much linguistic as heritage or historical. The main destinations are generally Brest and its four main museums of the Navy, Fine Arts, Tanguy Tower andCentre d'Art Passerelle. And Quimper and its three permanent museums: Beaux-Arts, Départemental Breton and Faïence. But don't miss Molène and Sein's incredible îles d'Ouessantones either. Or the capes of the Goat, Sizun or the tip of Pen-Hir. Bathed by the Gulf Stream, Finistère benefits from a microclimate, but also from different varieties of algae and good seawater quality, which are elements conducive to fitness. This destination has several seaside resorts, such as Roscoff, Bénodet, Loquirec and Douarnenez
