Le Creac'h.

Le phare du Créac'h a été construit en 1863. Haut de 47 mètres, c’est le plus puissant d'Europe. Ses deux lanternes superposées émettent un signal lumineux de huit faisceaux d’une portée de 60 kilomètres. Il éclaire la route de tous les porte-containers en provenance d’Asie et d’Afrique qui se dirigent vers les grands ports du Nord de l’Europe en empruntant ce que l’on appelle « Le rail d’Ouessant ».
La nuit, c’est très impressionnant de se trouver au pied du phare : on est comme enveloppé par les puissants faisceaux colorés qui balaient l’obscurité.

The Créac'h lighthouse was built in 1863. 47 meters high, it is the most powerful in Europe. Its two stacked lanterns emit a light signal of eight beams with a range of 60 kilometers. It illuminates the route of all container ships from Asia and Africa, which head to the major ports of Northern Europe using what is known as the « Rail d’Ouessant » (Ouessant’s way).
At night, it is very impressive to be at the foot of the lighthouse: one is as if enveloped by the powerful colored beams that sweep the darkness.

Best viewed in orignal size.

Je n'ai vu que son petit frère de l'Île de Sein, depuis un avion, mais celui-ci manque à ma liste des sites vus en Bretagne.
Jolies couleurs.
