Le sillon de Talbert
All the way at the tip of the almost-island formed by the Jaudy to the west and the Trieux to the east, the Sillon de Talbert is the exclamation point of a Brittany steadfastly turned towards the ocean.
The Sillon is a tongue of sand and pebbles 3km long darting towards the sea and the rocks that precede it, attempting to block the ebb and flow of the water that created it.

Don’t miss its market on Thursdays.
This Gallo-Roman site has been occupied since prehistoric times.
