Located on the Plougonvelin District, it is one of the advanced headlands of the European continent, a landmark on the route of ships since Antiquity and the end of an important ancient road. From that headland, a wide panorama can be discovered : to the south, from the trait of Brest to the Pointe du Raz, and to the west, from the Pierres Noires to Ouessant.
