Plougrescant is a commune in the region of Brittany, France. It is Brittany’s northernmost point and home to over 1.300 people. Its most famous building is called “Castel Meur”. Castel Meur is also known as “La Maison du Gouffre” which translates as the house of maw. The house between the rocks was built in 1861 – a time when building permits didn’t exist. Today it is still owned by the family of the builder and today his granddaughter is living there. However, the peninsula of Plougrescant has to offer much more as a unique building. Charming little ports, extraordinary rock piles, shingle beaches are just a fraction of the things one can find around here.
