Morlaix, between Leon and Tregor, is a city of art and history.
It is overlooked by a viaduct, 292 meters long and 62 meters high. It spans the river. At the foot of the viaduct runs the city on the three surrounding hills.
You have to climb steep alleys, steep stairs and terraced gardens.
And then down again admiring the beautiful houses built by corsairs or producers and manufacturers of linen.
After seeing the gardens sheltered from the high walls, we can see the old tobacco factory dating from the eighteenth century and registered in the directory of historical monuments since 1997. The factory is now home to the Space Science.
From the factory, we go along the marina, which is home to large and small sailboats that reach the sea by the river, when the tide is high.
By entering further into the city we enter the medieval district, with its magnificent wooden houses, and in particular the house "a pondalez" or house with the lantern. A museum was created in the convent of the Jacobins, it is unfortunately under construction until 2020.
Leaving the city, it would be a shame not to take a walk in the Tregor to admire the marvelous bay of Morlaix which includes a multitude of islands, islets and rocks, including the island Callot, the Castle of Taurus built in Sixteenth century to protect the city, Louet Island.
