DEPARTURE: Car park in the village of Lochrist.

The small village of Lochrist was once the heart of Le Conquet. It was the site of the Sainte-Croix church, which was moved 2 km away, to the center of Le Conquet, in 1856 1. It's also where the Le Conquet cemetery and the Saint-Michel chapel are still located. You'll have to enter the cemetery to discover it.

Patrimoine Iroise

Bourg de Lochrist

The large manor house was built around 1860 as a private residence by François TISSIER, industrialist, promoter of iodine production from seaweed centers and director of the Poulconq factory.

In 1935, the city of Brest, which owned the property at the time, set up a summer camp there.

Today, it is the property of the town of Le Conquet, where the municipality has set up its town hall.

Port du Conquet

The origin of the point's name is undoubtedly linked to the large population of foxes that used to live here.
