The lighthouse of Ploumanach, North Brittany

This lighthouse which shows the entry of the harbour of Ploumanac' h in North Brittany is also called "Mean ruz", which means red stone in Brittany language. It is the emblem of the famous pink granite coast in the north of Brittany. The first headlight was built in 1860, was destroyed in 1944 and was rebuilt in 1945. Its height is of 15 meters. Its appearance is very severe and its insulation does not make an exceptional construction of it, but it is the site which reddens with the light of the evening which gives to this unique site, a magic aspect. All the visible rocks around the headlight are out of pink granite.
