Around Ouessant Island (Finistere)


The history of Ouessant is long and rich. The island has been inhabited since prehistoric times, as evidenced by the many megaliths that have been discovered there. Ouessant was an important passage point for Vikings and pirates in the Middle Ages. During this period, the island was raided several times. In the 16th century, Ouessant became an important center of trade and fishing. The island was then known for its production of dried cod, which was exported to the countries of Northern Europe. In the 19th century, Ouessant experienced significant economic development, particularly thanks to the construction of lighthouses. The Créac'h lighthouse, the tallest in France, was built in 1863.
