Boasting a rich historical heritage, the "blue town" of Concarneau developed from an old fortified island, the Ville Close. It was built on a rocky islet and ramparts were erected around it in the 13th century, then remodelled in the 17th century by Vauban. This strategic position made it a first-rate military and trading site, which would require the town to be extended as time went by, with the addition of several suburbs and neighbouring villages. You can access the fortifications during the school holidays thanks to the Heritage House (Maison du Patrimoine), which provides access to the ramparts via the Governor's tower. From there, you can enjoy an impressive view of the Bay of Concarneau, the fishing harbour and the marina. Inside the Ville Close are the pretty, narrow streets of restaurants and shops that make this Finistère town so charming…An active fishing port, Concarneau tells the story of maritime activity at the Fishing Museum, with an impressive collection of boats, scale models and everyday objects used by sailors.
