By the Atlantic coast, in the heart of natural reserve Pointe Saint Gildas, this post become a semaphore station in 1862, later converted into a light house in 1954.  Still in use today, it’s automated and remote controlled.

Except the top level where the light stands, the rest of the building is a museum, so can be visited.
