A legend of love engraved on the stone: une legende d'amour sur la pierre gravée. This sentence is a beautiful tourist attraction for all those visiting for the first time here. Information for tourists: The Pink Granite Coast is north of one of the departments in the region of Brittany, Côtes d'Armor, Sea Coasts and Channel. It is a coastal stretch of about 10 km between connecting districts and Perros-Guirce Trégastel. Ploumanac'h belongs to the latter and it was here that I took most of the photos. This coastal stretch are largely crossed by so-called sentier des douaniers, custom trails, and these pictures make the experience unforgettable. The pink color of the rocks is due, according to the geology and I'm not a geologist, to a combination of three different minerals in granite, and one of them, feldspar is the one that gives the characteristic pink color. Curiously, only in China and Corsica do pink granite coasts exist, besides the one in question. Do not expect to find great cities or monuments: this is pure, harsh nature. I cannot say it is very accessible by train, plane or car. The last because I do not drive. In relation to the first 2 because I lived in Britain and I moved west, Brest, east, Lannion, our ave. From Paris it is easy to take a train to Saint Brieuc Lannion within a few miles of each other. Saint Brieuc has an airport as it is the capital. Accommodation? / Food? We only stayed in 2 star hotels that were good value for money: the ibis Lannion, about 10 km from the coast but well connected via bus, and the Hôtel du Phare Ploumanac'h in view of the pink granite coast . Here is a link on the Pink Granite Coast with abundant information: Deputy http://www.cotedegranitrose.fr/ dogs guirec link in case it might be of use: http://www.perros-guirec.fr/ Personal experience: A personal experience is by nature somewhat incommunicable as it pertains to our subjectivity and private preferences. I recommend it as a man of letters ve was more interested in the beauty of the landscapes and the Arthurian cycle, Tristan and Isolde, than the composition of the famous rocks. Thank you.
I hike the trail close to Ploumanach customs, after looking towards the piles of pink granite attached to the blue sea and quietly enjoyed it. Although I had to test my patience to park my car since the place is crowded in the summer, I always find it difficult had to leave. The visual pleasure is assured.
The cradle of pink granite overlooks the Atlantic at this point. Its cathedral, the town hall, its headlights and bridges withstand the brunt of air and waves have a pink to reddish tone, which makes anyone who goes there fall in love. It is a color that covers everything that stands across Britain. The 'vie en rose' is taken literally from this coastal town. Ploumanac'h lighthouse is one of the main attractions. An amazing view of the world's largest pink berrocales. The blue sea and pink rocks are one of the most romantic images of France.
