Petit Futé's opinion on AMERICAN MONUMENT

Vintage plate 2020

The American monument was built in 1927 on the promenade of Cours Dajot to commemorate the participation of American soldiers in the First World War. Destroyed during the Second World War, this 50-metre high polished granite tower of Ploumanac'h was rebuilt identically in 1958. Dominating the port of Brest, it also enjoys the status of extraterritoriality, letting us see a small piece of America! A few meters further on is the staircase leading to the commercial port, immortalized in Remorques, Roger Vercel's novel and Jean Grémillon's film. It is rare to be able to go up there. For more information, contact the town hall.

Un des monuments les plus connus de la cité du Ponant.
Ce bâtiment situé entre la gare et le port est entretenu par les Etats-Unis eux-mêmes! Cette tour "rose" peut être appréciée depuis deux points de vue, mais le plus impressionnant pour mesurer sa grandeur est celui depuis le bas de celle-ci (l'autre accès se situant juste au dessus, rue de Denver).
