What's Brest Like?
Brest is a city that has mastered the best elements of a seafaring lifestyle. The local ports are still active and perfect for strolling and boat gazing. Meanwhile, the Port du Commerce is a popular meeting spot full of cafés and restaurants. The natural harbor, the Rade, is the best spot from which to take a boat ride around the scenic seascape. Due to most of the city having been destroyed during WWII, Brest is a mix of modern architecture with a handful of ancient monuments. The city's castle, Château de Brest, and Tanguy tower are the best examples of Brest's ancient past. Its modern attractions include the fantastic Pont de I'lroise bridge, a botanical garden and Océanopolis, an aquarium and marine park. Brest hotels are a great way to enjoy a unique beach-side stay while feeling far away from the typical overrun resort spots.
