Le phare de Nividic est construit sur un îlot rocher qui est le lieu le plus occidental de le France métropolitaine. Au-delà aucune terre n’est en vue avant l’Amérique du Nord. La construction du phare s’avéra très difficile en raison de la force des courants. Conçu pour être automatisé dès sa mise en service, l’on construisit deux pylônes en béton entre le phare et la côte de manière à supporter les cables électriques nécessaires à son fonctionnement ainsi qu’un téléphérique pour le transport des équipes de maintenance.

The lighthouse of Nividic is built on a rock island which is the most western place of metropolitan France. Beyond no land in sight before North America. The construction of the lighthouse proved very difficult due to the strength of the currents. Designed to be automated as soon as it was put into service, two concrete towers were built between the lighthouse and the coast to support the electrical cables necessary for its operation as well as a cable car for the transport of maintenance crews.

a formidable border, and well protected by the North Atlantic moat...the shore looks problematic to cross too...a well fashioned image..
